Feral Atlas ranks 15 in Power 100

    The London-based magazine ArtReview recently released their annual Power 100 list of the top influencers in the contemporary art world for 2020. The Cairns Institute's theme leader for Creative Ecologies, A/Prof Jennifer Deger, has been honoured by ranking number 15 on this list for her co-curated project Feral Atlas: the More-than-Human Anthropocene

    Feral Atlas is transdisciplinary work of environmental scholarship that brings together more than 100 scientists, social scientists, artists, activists and humanists to track the runway trajectories of environmental devastation caused by human infrastructures. 

    In compiling their 2020 list, ArtReview has responded to the tumultuous events of 2020 by bringing “a greater emphasis on the circulation of ideas and values (about justice, equality, ways of living, our relationship with the environment and basic human rights". 

    ArtReview recognises Feral Atlas for modelling new forms of collective thinking. The jurors highlight "the power of putting diverse thinkers and makers from around the globe on a platform that goes beyond the usual limitations of physical place and intellectual disciplines – a form of networked collaboration that may be key to grasping the age of the Anthropocene and our current ecological crisis".

    Co-edited and curated by Anna Tsing, Jennifer Deger, Alder Keleman Saxena and Feifei Zhou, Feral Atlas includes contributions by JCU PhD student and Feral Atlas Visual Editor, Victoria Baskin Coffey, recent JCU anthropology graduate, Dr Matthew Buttacavoli and former JCU Future Fellow, A/Prof Lee Berger. 

     The Power 100 is widely acknowledged as one of the most prestigious rankings in the international art community. Other Australians on this year's list include MCA Director, Elizabeth Ann Macgregor, and interdisciplinary artist and Director of the 2020 Sydney Biennale, Brook Andrew.
