Consumption eARTh: Art in the Anthropocene Age with Artist Neal Galloway
Saturday, July 31, 2021, 11:00 am
Artist Neal Galloway will present on his works and art practice which explore the ways in which Earth’s environment is ultimately shaped by human consumption. Galloway’s conceptual artwork explores our understanding of nature, waste, materiality, and our emotional connections to objects and ecosystems. Society has created complex systems which disconnect people from both the origins of their material belongings and from the utterly staggering volume of waste they produce. His artwork seeks to highlight these connections and explore human relationships to the natural world, social inequality, and consumer practices. These pieces take a variety of forms including sculpture, environmental works, installations, performance, videos, and more—using a wide range of traditional and non-traditional art materials.
Neal Galloway is an artist and educator from Flagstaff, Arizona who serves as a Foundations Lecturer in the School of Art at Northern Arizona University. He holds an MFA in 3D and Extended Media from the University of Arizona and a BA in Art and Music from the University of Tulsa. Galloway has been teaching college-level art courses for more than a decade and has exhibited artwork at a wide range of venues across the United States.
