Ph.D. student Michael Hartman was invited to participate in a symposium on March 1, 2019, hosted at the Yale Center for British Art in conjunction with their exhibition, Before the Deluge: Apocalyptic Floodscapes from John Martin to John Goto, 1789 to Now, which explores how the idea of the Deluge has been represented and interpreted by British artists and writers from the end of the eighteenth century to the present day. The symposium brought together academics, curators, artists, and civic leaders to reflect upon how museums can communicate, represent, and engage with pressing environmental issues of our time.
Hartman participated on the panel “Curating Environmental Apocalypse” and discussed his recent exhibition at the Clark Art Institute, Extreme Nature!, which examined how the rise of popular science in the nineteenth century transpired into a cultural fascination with nature’s extremes—real or imagined. You can read more about Hartman’s exhibition in a previous article.
