Next week the final Art & Ecology visiting artist for this fall will be on campus. John Reid is Professor Emeritus at Australia National University where he directed the Field Studies program and a photographer and environmental activist. “From his first taste in the 1970’s of the power of the visual image to effect social change, John Reid has combined art and activism in a forty year creative practice. In this selective overview of his work, he will refer to his successes and failures as a visual artist in addressing issues associated with population control, political disappearances, national aggression, native forest conservation and global warming.”
Professor Reid will present his work and answer questions about the UNM/ANU exchange program at
CFA Downtown at 5:30 on Tuesday October 27th. On Wednesday Oct 28 at 12:30 he lead a “walking the solar system” event at Civic Plaza at 12:30 as part of COP21, (United Nations conference on climate change). Please join us for both events.
