LANDSCAPE AND ENVIRONMENT FROM FACTORY TO FRACKING How artists respond to the impact of industry on the environment Tricia Passes Thursday 17 September 2020

Tricha took her BA(Hons) at the Courtauld Institute, University of London and won the Sotheby’s Prize for a research project on Edvard Munch and the Christiana Avant-garde.  Her MA studies were undertaken in the Visual Culture Department at Bath Spa University.  Her thesis examined the work of Roger Fry and Roland Penrose. Former research posts include work on ‘150 years of the Bristol School of Art’ (2003),  ‘Peace Gardens of the 1980s’ (2005) and  'Stanley Spencer: Journey to Burghclere', published by Prof. Paul Gough (2006).

This lecture explores approaches taken by different artists, from the industrial revolution of the eighteenth century to Yoko Ono’s anti fracking art group and David Hockney’s support for new technology alongside his vibrant Yorkshire landscape paintings.
