On friday the 6th of October at 1 pm an open lecture by Sonia Levy will be held at the Department of Fine Art, Laugarnesvegur 91.

Can art help to address or even reconfigure shifts in societal change in a time of ecological collapse? What are the benefits of bridging the arts and sciences with this in mind?

In this talk, Sonia Levy will share how two of her most recent and ongoing projects approach these intricate questions.

The answers are excitingly complex and open to debate.

Sonia Levy is a French artist living between London and Iceland. After graduating from Villa Arson, École des Beaux–Art de Nice in France, she undertook a post-graduate course at École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. In 2016 she took part in a programme in arts and politic (SPEAP) at Sciences Po in Paris, led by professor Bruno Latour.

The lecture will be held in English and is open to the public.
