We are able to peek into the far corners of the world from the safety of our homes, theatres and galleries but what does it mean to “capture” nature in art? From Turner’s relationship with London’s smog in the late 19th-century to work today exploring the oil sands and Chernobyl, the critical questions remain: Are we simply holding up a mirror to reflect our world back to us? Or are we creating an aesthetic around its destruction? Join photographer David McMillan, artist Diana Thorneycroft, and chef Mandel Hitzer as they discuss the significance of the “capture” of nature through art.
