Meet the following experts in the Lower Contemporary Galleries for a variety of perspectives on Anthropocene, the exhibition. Each talk is included with admission to the Gallery.

November 3: L’anthropos de la (s)cène… Quelle humanité pour cette nouvelle ère géo-climatique?
[The Anthropos of the (S)cene: What Shapes Humanity in this New Geoclimatic Era?]
Join David Jaclin, Professor of Sociological and Anthropological Studies at the University of Ottawa, in an exploration of the concept of anthropos (Greek for “human”). If humankind has indeed instigated a new geological epoch, which concept of humanity are we talking about, and how do we identify responsibilities and powers, problems and solutions? In French with bilingual question period.

November 24: Queer Futures
Join Heather Davis, Assistant Professor of Culture and Media at The New School in New York, as she explores some of the unintended consequences of the current environmental crisis, from the birth of new organisms to re-envisioning wasted landscapes. Drawing upon new work by Edward Burtynsky, Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier, Davis will discuss how artists are approaching the novel ecologies of the Anthropocene. In English with bilingual question period.

February 23: The Infrastructure of Canada's Anthropocene: Oil Pipeline Development in the Twentieth Century
Join Sean Kheraj, Associate Professor of Canadian and Environmental History at York University, as he examines the history of Canada's first transcontinental oil pipelines — and their subsequent expansion from the late 1940s to the mid-1970s — as the country made this consequential energy transition. In English with bilingual question period.

September 29: Art in the Anthropocene
