Trajectories: How to Reconcile the Careerist Mentality with Our Impending Doom.

12:00 am in Events by bloc

Website: http://www.furtherfield.org/displayreview.php?review_id=393
Location: online

Outline:

From September 2008 – June 2010, Ellie Harrison undertook a Leverhulme Scholarship on the Master of Fine Art programme at Glasgow School of Art. The thesis published forms one of the major outcomes of her research during this period. This is part one of four weekly articles to be published on Furtherfield.

How Can We Continue Making Art? – which questions whether there is a place for art in a world which is fast approaching environmental catastrophe, and Altermoderism: The Age of Stupid (http://tinyurl.com/32a3wr7) published on Furtherfield (26/8/09) – which uses Nicolas Bourriaud`s Altermodern exhibition at Tate Britain in 2009 as a paradigm for exploring the art world institution`s lack of acknowledgement and action over climate change.

Trajectories: How to Reconcile the Careerist Mentality with Our Impending Doom, addresses the ethical implications of continuing to choose the career of artist in the twenty-first century. It is a manifesto of sorts, written from the personal perspective of a young UK-based artist looking to identify worthwhile reasons for continuing down this `self-interested` path, given that the future we are likely to face as a result of climate change, is so different from how we dreamt our careers might pan out whilst growing up under Thatcher and New Labour. It explores how we should aim to evolve our roles as artists, in light of this, and what form a new `reconciled practice` might take.
