Art After the Collapse – LASER talks at Dartington

by | Apr 8, 2021 | News & blogs: Arts School

In late 2019 Dartington Trust held a provocative series of LASER talks entitled Art After The Collapse curated by Rob La Frenais. Featuring 15 leading artists and thinkers, the talks focus on how artists can point us at directions for ‘deep adaptation’ to a climate and ecological collapse that some say has already started to happen.

LASER (Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous) Talks is Leonardo’s international program of evening gatherings that bring artists and scientists together for informal presentations and conversations. LASER Talks were founded in 2008 by Bay Area LASER Chair Piero Scaruffi and are in over 30 cities around the world.
