At a time when facts can have ‘alternative facts’, news can be ‘fake’, and coal can be ‘clean’, ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017 upholds a long tradition of art speaking truthfully and thoughtfully to power.

Art has been at the forefront of many social movements, and now more than ever, we need to harness the creative power of the arts to engage, inspire, and motivate people to act on climate change.

ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017 presents over thirty curated exhibitions at leading museums and galleries in Melbourne and regional Victoria including EXIT, the highly acclaimed 360° video installation commissioned by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris. EXIT investigates human migrations and their leading causes, including the impacts of climate change. Its complete 2015 update coincided with the pivotal Paris-based United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21).
