Art, not just for art’s sake, but Art that walks in the world.
Art Critic, Author, and Cultural Geographer, William L. Fox takes audiences on a profound and delightful adventure to discover how artist’s depiction of the natural world, dating back to the 1700s and leading up to present day art displays at Burning Man, has evolved in reaction to human-caused global changes. Fox’s passion for landscape, human cognition and history collides with his scholar’s curiosity and power of analysis to produce one of the most engaging discussions yet on art and the environment.
William L. Fox has researched and written books set in the extreme environments of the Antarctic, the Arctic, Chile, Nepal, and other locations. He is a fellow of both the Royal Geographical Society and Explorers Club and he is the recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities, and National Science Foundation. He has been a visiting scholar at the
Getty Research Institute, Clark Art Institute, the Australian National University, and National Museum of Australia.
