Symposium programme includes:
Part 1: Art and Environment
David Cross is an Artist, Reader and Pathway Leader for MA Visual Arts (Graphic Design) at Camberwell. His research, practice and teaching have long been informed by a critical engagement with the relationship between visual culture and the contested ideal of ‘sustainable’ development, more recently focused on fossil energy dependency and climate breakdown. He is now shifting towards promoting the transition to a post-carbon society. As an artist, Cross began collaborating with Matthew Cornford while studying at St Martin’s School of Art in 1987, and graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1991. Since then, the work of Cornford & Cross has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and projects include an Arts Council residency at the London School of Economics, and a British Council residency at Vitamin in Guangzhou, China. www.arts.ac.uk/david-cross
