FIRE, 9th February - 19th March 2022

FIRE, 9th February – 19th March 2022.

CLIMARTE was proud to start 2022 with FIRE, an exhibition by artists who have experienced or make work about fire.

More extreme and ferocious fires, particularly in Australia, are a huge consequence of the changes in climate due to global warming caused by increasing greenhouse gas emissions. Artists in FIRE have experienced its ravaging effects first hand.

FIRE was opened by both Dan Condon, a career fire-fighter who ran in the national Run for a Safe Climate in 2009, and the Mayor of City or Yarra, Cr Sophie Wade on the 9th of February.

We thank all participating artists, Katherine Boland, John Gollings, Jody Graham, Fiona Lee, Louise Morgan and Benedict Sibley.
Creative Producer, Jo Lane.

We also thank international composer and sound artist Jamie Perera for his powerful performance of Antrhopocene in C Major in the Gallery from sunset on 9th March, and for contributing WILDFIRE: a sonification of civilian protests by world region from 2009 – 2019 to FIRE.
