Critical Limit: An Urgent Call for Collective Climate Action
Across moving image, photography, painting, print and sculpture the works explored issues contributing to the climate emergency and its impact on our animal life and natural ecologies. Critical Limit looked to our artists to gain knowledge, express our concerns, and find solutions. Critical Limit was an impassioned response to this urgent call for collective action.
