Free Zoom Webinar | RSVP: [email protected]
Nature, Art & Habitat invites you to another exciting conversation on coexistence as expressed in contemporary art.
One of our speakers is Diana Thater, an artist from California. Her work explores the complexity of nature and its relationship with mankind
She explores both human & animal behaviors and the interdependence of the built world and natural habitats. Her work creates immersive spatial and visual environments.
Diana will be in conversation with Leonardo Caffo, a philosopher and curator from Milano.
Caffo's thinking is focused on ecological and ethical issues, as well as inter-species interactions.
In the context of the world-wide pandemic, discussing these issues is more urgent than ever.

ABOUT NAHR and NAH_Remote
Nature, Art and Habitat (NAHR) is a cross-disciplinary residency program, founded by Ilaria Mazzoleni, an architect and educator based in LA and managed by an international group of contributors. Deborah Weintraub, AIA, the Chief Deputy City Engineer in the city of LA, is the chair of the scientific committee and Gabi Scardi, an art curator from Milano, is the president of NAHR.
Due to the events unfolding globally, we had to postpone the physical residency to 2021, which was themed as 'Animals: Interdependence between species'. As we see the content very critical and relevant to current situation, we wanted to continue the exploration remotely.
Nature Art and Habitat invites to conversations and reflections on “coexistence,” “resilience”, and the evolution of environmental thinking in recent weeks, in the context of the world-wide pandemic and NAHR’s underlying philosophy. Discussing the interdependence between species and coexistence is more urgent than ever. This means exploring the issue of a different and more balanced relationship between human and non-human animals, and imagining new choices that could lead to tangible individual and collective and actions.
The multidisciplinary conversations explore how species meet, intersect, coexist, and co-create ecosystems in this post-human centric, post-anthropocentric era, as the world grapples with COVID-19. The reflections will focus on the relationship and intersections of science with design, architecture, landscape, philosophy, visual arts, and performing arts.
