Yandell Walton, Ecological-Encroachment, 2021.
Produced by Centre for Projection Art, EVANESCE features work by artists whose practice deeply engages with critical issues associated with the Climate Emergency.
The term ‘evanesce’ means to pass out of sight, memory, or existence and is frequently used in the present, referring to extinction that can be accounted for mainly by climate change.
Over two weeks, this exhibition aims to create a dialogue that investigates different approaches to addressing the cultural failures that are core to the grave climate and biodiversity crises we collectively face.
Timed to coincide with World Environment Day on 5 June, this exciting collaboration with the Centre for Projection Art (CPA) will also launch ART+CLIMATE=ACTION (A+C=A). Inspired by CLIMARTE’s celebrated ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE biennial festivals, the A+C=A program will produce and present powerful climate justice artwork and creative projects on an ongoing basis.
We hope you will join CPA and CLIMARTE on 5th June at 6pm for a public discussion with EVANESCE artists, and to officially launch A+C=A.
From 25th May to the 5th June 2022.
