The evolving relationships between artists, the changing climate and new responsibilities

Hinterland is a project led by independent curator, Jennie Syson. Working together with artists, Hinterland closely examines the areas that surround the River Trent in Nottingham which make up a ten mile car free cycle route around the city known as the Big Track. As we head towards economic depression and society becomes increasingly aware of issues surrounding global warming and the natural environment, Hinterland pays tribute to the geographical locations and the industrial halo that surrounds Nottingham’s city centre.

Latitudes in Kult Magazine (#10, October 2009)

Milan-based Kult Magazine has published an article on art and ecology in their October issue written by art critic and curator Daniele Perra. In the section, Perra interviews curator Francesco Manacorda (curator of the exhibition 'Radical Nature: Art and Architecture for a Changing Planet 1969-2009' on view at the Barbican Art Gallery, London, until 18 October), as well as English artist Simon Starling and selects a few ongoing exhibitions and events that analyse the relationship between art and nature.

In page 88 (see detail above) Perra mentioned Latitudes' ecology-related projects such as the 'Greenwashing. Environment: Perils, Promises and Perplexities...' exhibition at the Fondazione Sandretto in Turin in 2008, the guest-edition of UOVO #14 in 2007 and the publication 'Land, Art: A Cultural Ecology Handbook' in 2006, to introduce our participation in the forthcoming The Wånas Foundation seminar on Art and Ecology taking place on the 21 October in Knislinge, Sweden and in the symposium organised by Hinterland Projects on 26th November titled 'The evolving relationships between artists, the changing climate and new responsibilities'.
