Saturday, April 13 at 3 PM, Artbook at Hauser & Wirth Bookstore presents Linda Weintraub in conversation with Laura Parker, Rose-Lynn Fisher and Terence Koh for a special book signing event to celebrate the release of WHAT’S NEXT? Eco Materialism & Contemporary Art.
Swap questions. Offer responses. Participate in the trialogue exploring contemporary art that pays tribute to matter, materiality, and materialization as introduced in Linda Weintraub’s new book, WHAT’S NEXT? Eco Materialism & Contemporary Art.
By paying tribute to matter, materiality, and materialization, the examples of contemporary art assembled in WHAT’S NEXT? Eco Materialism and Contemporary Art challenge the social, cultural and ethical norms that prevailed in the twentieth century. This significant frontier of contemporary culture is identified as "Eco Materialism" because it affirms the emergent philosophy of Neo Materialism and attends to the pragmatic urgency of environmentalism.
In this highly original book, Linda Weintraub surveys the work of 40 international artists who present materiality as a strategy to convert society’s environmental neglect into responsible stewardship. These bold art initiatives, enriched by their associations with philosophy, ecology, and cultural critique, bear the hallmark of a significant new art movement. This accessible text, augmented with visuals, charts, and questionnaires, invites students and a wider readership to engage in this timely arena of contemporary art.
