CLIMARTE GALLERY

After more than ten years working at the nexus between art, science and civil society, CLIMARTE introduces the world’s first gallery dedicated to addressing the Climate Emergency in all its manifestations.

Convinced of the creative power of the arts to inform, engage, and inspire, the CLIMARTE Gallery presents groundbreaking participatory exhibitions addressing interconnected and interdependent ecological impacts as well as effective, justice-based solutions to the Climate Emergency. Additionally, the Gallery hosts robust programs of public-facing events that delve into critical discourse between art, science and civil society.

Given the depth of grief and despair associated with climate issues, the CLIMARTE Gallery also provides an important welcoming space for people from diverse communities to be heard.

As our Gallery is also available for hire by trusted groups and individuals, please consider us if you’re looking for a venue for a special meeting or event.

'HEAR'

Inaugural Exhibition
10th Nov - 18th Dec 2021

CLIMARTE is proud to open the world’s first Climate Emergency Gallery with HEAR, an exhibition of contemporary Indigenous art calling for all Australians to listen to and care for Country.

For CLIMARTE, it was critically important that the Gallery open with First Nations artists’ voices. We feel humbled by the opportunity to present this exceptional collection of deeply engaging artwork.

 

We thank all participating artists. Artists include Peter Waples-Crowe, Deanne Gilson, Professor Brian Martin (courtesy William Mora Galleries),  Kent Morris and James Tylor (courtesy Vivien Anderson Gallery)
Creative Producer, Jo Lane.

 

HEAR is made possible thanks to an Annual Grant from the City of Yarra.
