Book launch, workshop, discussion & signing for Linda Weintraub’s 'WHAT’S NEXT? Eco Materialism & Contemporary Art' at MoMA PS1 Book Space

From 12–5 PM, Weintraub invites you to create your own Eco Material brooch honoring neglected forms of materiality: feathers, acorns, pinecones, bones, moss, twigs, mushrooms, seeds and/or lichens. Drop-in. Make a brooch. Transform Eco Material theory into Eco Material action. No RSVP required.

From 3–4:30 PM, Weintraub will participate in the panel, "Monologue / Dialogue / Trialogue: Is Eco Materialism ‘What’s Next’ in Art?" with artists Wenda Gu, Dove Bradshaw, Laura Parker, Zbigniew Oksiuta and Amy Youngs. Swap questions. Offer responses. Participate in the trialogue exploring contemporary art that pays tribute to matter, materiality, and materialization as introduced in WHAT’S NEXT? Eco Materialism & Contemporary Art. In the book, Weintraub identifies this vanguard art movement as "Eco Materialism" because it affirms the emergent philosophy of New Materialism and it attends to the pragmatic urgency of environmentalism.

The workshop and discussion are FREE and open to the public. Participants of all ages may drop in throughout the day. No RSVP is required.

Linda Weintraub is a curator, educator, artist, and author of several popular books about contemporary art. She has earned her reputation by making the outposts of vanguard art accessible to broad audiences. Weintraub’s books exploring contemporary art and ecology include WHAT’s NEXT? Eco Materialism & Contemporary Art (2018), To LIFE! Eco Art in Pursuit of a Sustainable Planet (2012), and Avant-Guardians (2007), a series of textlets that include EcoCentric Topics: Pioneering Themes for Eco-Art; Cycle-Logical Art: Recycling Matters for Eco-Art; EnvironMentalities: Twenty-two Approaches to Eco-Art. Weintraub applies environmental concerns to her personal life by managing a sustainable homestead where she practices permaculture. She is also the author of In the Making: Creative Options for Contemporary Artists and Art on the Edge and Over: Searching for Art’s Meaning in Contemporary Society. She served as the director of the Edith C. Blum Art Institute located on the Bard College campus where she toured many of the fifty exhibitions she curated, and published over twenty catalogs. Weintraub was the Henry Luce Professor of Emerging Arts at Oberlin College and currently teaches in the Nomad9 MFA program at the University of Hartford.
