The Clark – Humane Ecology, Eight Positions Opening Lecture

In conjunction with the opening of Humane Ecology: Eight Positions, the Clark Art Institute has hosted a lecture by Curator of Contemporary Projects Robert Wiesenberger. The lecture was presented in the Clark’s auditorium on July 15, 2023. Eight contemporary artists who consider the intertwined natural and social dimensions of ecological relationships has included sculpture, sound installation, video, and plantings. Each artist represents a distinct approach and place, or “position,” and the complex dynamics between living things and their environments is essential to their thinking. Through their work, these artists illuminate patterns of cultivation and care, migration and adaptation, extraction, and exploitation that span historical, geographical, and species lines. Humane Ecology is presented in outdoor and indoor spaces at the Clark, including both the Clark Center and Lunder Center at Stone Hill.
