Talk: Timothy Morton—With SXSW Eco

Co-presented with SXSW Eco

Influential ecological theorist Timothy Morton, an inspiration for artist Charles Long’s new commissioned installation CATALIN at The Contemporary Austin, explores “dark ecology,” environmentalism, and object-oriented ontology in his work.

Morton will speak and sign his latest book, Hyperobjects: Philosophy and Ecology After the End of the World, in a provocative gathering of the art and ideas defining our natural and cultural landscape.

RSVP is required for this reception and conversation. Space is limited.
