UNFIX Festival
How big is here? How long is now? The work of Newton Harrision | The Barn

Sat 30 March 2019

Taking the recent Newton Harrison exhibition at The Barn, Aberdeenshire as a starting point, we examine how Scotland might become the first industrialised nation to give back more to the web of life than it takes.

Over his fifty-year career, Newton Harrison has created ambitious artworks that put the health of the life web first. Beginning with Harrison and his wife Helen Mayer as pioneers of the arts and ecology movement and culminating in the artist's most recent, radical proposal for Scotland. With urgent action needed, we ask what can the arts do for Ecology?
