Free

Please note that places are limited at this event and we’re asking people to RSVP here.

“The main goal of my artistic practice over the past decade has been to investigate and interrogate the ways that we conceptualize, visualize and narrate our relationships to and understanding of the non-human world, ecology and environment. The main forms that I’ve employed to carry out my projects have been large format digital photography, video and installation art. I want to create a new visual language to understand these intersections of the human-natural world in order to help us think the future in full awareness of the actual character of the physical and mental landscapes we currently inhabit.”

Maria Whiteman is Assistant Professor of Drawing and Intermedia in Fine Arts at the University of Alberta. Her current art practice explores themes such as art and science, relationships between industry, community and nature, and the place of animals in our cultural and social imaginary. In addition to her studio work, she conducts research in contemporary art theory and visual culture.

Event location
The event is being held in the Rupert Myers Theatre at UNSW, off of Barker Street. The Rupert Myers Theatre is adjacent to the Old Main Building.
