Defining the Promittocene: In Conversation with Thomas Wynne and Dr Paula McCloskey

Join artist Thomas Wynne in conversation with Dr Paula McCloskey to define the promittocene.


In this online talk, Thomas will delve into the makings of the exhibition ‘Into The Promittocene’, and his experiences during his residency at The Wireworks Project. This project aims to expand upon his practice which revolves around the conceptualisation and examination of a post-Earth epoch, The Promittocene. By interrogating representations of fictional futures through photography, installation and sculpture, Wynne’s work seeks to question the human condition and humanity’s position within the greater world ecosystem. This residency has been supported by a Develop Your Creative Practice Grant from Arts Council England.


Thomas will be joined by Dr Paula McCloskey, an artist, artistic researcher and teacher, School of Arts, University of Derby, UK. Her transdisciplinary, collaborative research in contemporary art practice, critical theory and social engagement sits at the intersections of art, geopolitics/climate and maternity/kinship.
