VELOCITY Talks: Invisible Dust

17:30 on 19 March 2015
The Lighthouse

It’s getting hotter, can art help us act?
Alice Sharp, Director, Invisible Dust

In the lead up to the 2015 UN Climate talks taking place in Paris at the end of the year, we need to act. How can artists contribute to our understanding of climate change? In this talk Alice Sharp, Director of Invisible Dust, will explore her curatorial ideas which have brought together artists including Jeremy Deller, Adam Chodzko, Dryden Goodwin, Ellie Harrison and Mariele Neudecker with scientists to produce exciting new artworks exploring our environment.

Invisible Dust works with leading artists and scientists to produce unique and exciting works of contemporary art and new scientific ideas exploring our environment and climate change. Invisible Dust encourages awareness of, and meaningful responses to, climate change, air pollution and related health, technological and environmental issues. It achieves this by facilitating a dialogue between visual artists, creative technologists and leading world scientists. Invisible Dust strives, through its creation of high impact and unique arts programmes, alongside developments in new technology and scientific theories, to create an accessible, imaginative and approachable forum and stimulus.

Alice Sharp is the founder, Curator and Director of Invisible Dust. Alice is based in London and has worked as a curator of artist’s projects in public spaces since 1997. See more at:
