T.J. Demos: “Rights of Nature: The Art and Politics of Earth Jurisprudence”

April 22, 2015 @ 12:15 pm - 2:00 pm

| Humanities 1, Room 210 | Free

T.J. Demos’s current work explores the intersection of visual culture, art, environmental and indigenous activism, and the recent biocentric turn in law, particularly as it relates to political ecology in the Americas. His research accompanied the preparation for Rights of Nature: Art and Ecology in the Americas, a 2015 exhibition he co-curated at Nottingham Contemporary in the U.K.

T.J. Demos is Professor of History in Art and Visual Culture at UC Santa Cruz.
