A+RC’s second Summer Intensive addresses ways in which urgent climate issues and anthropogenic effects apply pressure to contemporary cultural production. Seminars range from discussions related to Miami’s immediate conditions to more abstract probing around what it means to think and produce art on a planet that is rapidly changing. With guests as Jason W. Moore and Rozalinda Borcila.
