DOUBLE EXHIBITION OPENING // Friday 21 September | 6 – 8pm | all welcome!
OilScapes // Various Artists

Exhibition runs 22nd September – 27th October 2012

OilScapes explores connections between oil, geopolitics and visual culture with particular emphasis on human mobility and the natural environment. Works by Zeigam Azizov, Peter Fend, Owen Logan, Melik Ohanian, Aga Ousseinov and Janet Stewart.

Artist’s Talk Saturday 22 Sep, 4pm. ‘Arab Springs, Persian Sinks’ by Peter Fend

Fend intended to present After Oil to explain how a transition from fossil to biological energy production could transform the Gulf/Capsian region. Instead, the recent collapse of US credibility throughout Arabia and Persia sparked by the death of the US Ambassador to Libya, means Fend will now explain why such action has been made difficult but is more urgent than ever.

Owen Logan (artist), Professor Andew Hurst (Shell Chair in Production Geology) and Professor John Paterson (Oil and Gas Law) from the University of Aberdeen will respond to Peter’s talk ahead of general dicussion with the audience.

OilScapes/Film : Sunday 23 September, 6pm. Josh Fox’s Gasland (2010), Belmont Picturehouse.
