In Session 1, our first Keynote Ingrid Pollard launched the symposium ‘Practicing Landscape: Land, Histories and Transformation’, bringing her practice concerns on representation, history and landscape with reference to race, difference and materiality. This week’s theme for Session 2 is Wild Spaces, and our panel expands this theme to encompass contemporary art practice, peripheral territories, ideas of remoteness along with notions of the sublime, embodiment and materiality.
