Why We Need a Feminist Climate Science with Bev Pike
Free, everyone welcome to attend!
In 2007, artist Katie Paterson made audio recordings of retreating Icelandic glaciers into ice records and played them until they melted. Her work expanded knowledge about the kinds of data that patriarchal science considers important. Artist Bev Pike will facilitate a discussion about methods of knowledge-making in climate science.
Bev Pike is a Winnipeg artist known for gigantic immersive paintings of architectural utopias amid climate catastrophe, based on her research into historic shell grottos. Pike’s work is in public art galleries across Canada. She also creates humorous Agony Aunt columns in artist books that are included in international collections.
