Environmentalism in Art

PRESENTED ON SEP 03, 2015
IN TOWNSVILLE @ VOL 9

"Environmentalism [in art] takes things a step beyond representation."

In Environmentalism in Art from PechaKucha Night Townsville Vol. 9, curator Eric Nash shines the spotlight on a collection of artists whose works take on humanity's deep connection to our natural environment. Showing examples ranging from oil paintings depicting the effects of climate change to inspiring sculptures made from salvaged beach rubbish, Nash shares how the tradition of creatively expressing our place and our effect in the natural world continues. A selection of the some of the well-known and close-to-home artworks and artists featured here will be exhibited in the Perc Tuker Gallery this December.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 15th, 2017.
