Conversations about art and ecology

Bénédicte Ramade, an art historian and lecturer at the Université de Montréal, will speak with various curators, artists and scientists in this series of discussions debuting this fall. The participants will share their different perspectives on environmental issues such as eco-anxiety, the sixth (animal) extinction, climate change and plant intelligence.

How can climate change be depicted appropriately, even though it affects different areas and takes different forms? Drawing on Lorraine Gilbert’s forestry experience, this conversation will examine various kinds of climate change visuals and the use of images in a media-saturated society.

Dominique Paquin is a climate simulation and analysis specialist as well as head of climate science-related training at Ouranos.

Through surveying today’s natural world, the photographs of Lorraine Gilbert reflect her interest in environmental science and forestry. A native of France, she lives and works in Ottawa.
