Title of the talk: “A letter from America (Thoughts on ecological practice)”

Lucia Pietroiusti spoke about the role art and culture can play in today’s environmental emergency reflecting on her latest research around worlding and worldbuilding practices in relation to different political and ecological realities.

The talk of Lucia Pietroiustina is part of the Program “With Earth in Μind”, curated for ARTWORKS by Daphne Dragona

What changes when the focus of artistic and curatorial practices is the planet itself? How are projects, exhibitions and events created with and for the Earth and its ecosystems? What role can art play in addressing the climate crisis and asserting climate justice?

“With Earth in Mind” hosts art professionals whose work has been created with and for the Earth and its ecosystems and has been dedicated to environmental issues with the aim of provoking not only discussions but also substantial changes. The program of talks is curated and moderated by Daphne Dragona, independent curator and member of the 5th SNF Artist Fellowship Program selection committee for curating.
