As part of CLIMARTE’s ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017 Festival Arts Project Australia is excited to present Disparate Lands. Currently on display at Creative Space’s The Guild, Disparate Lands considers various aspects and responses surrounding climate change.
Featuring the work of Arts Project Australia artists including Michael Camakaris, Paul Hodges, Miles Howard-Wilks, Chris Mason and Cathy Staughton, the exhibition juxtaposes idyllic landscapes with works of unsettling and contaminated lands. Displaying large-scale works on canvas, the paintings depict the promise of hope, as well as the stark reality of the environmental challenges facing our global community today.
Presented by Arts Project Australia in partnership with CLIMARTE, Disparate Lands is curated by Sim Luttin and James McDonald. The exhibitions begins Thursday 27 April and continues until Saturday 1 July.
CLIMARTE is an arts organisation dedicated to harnessing the creative power of the arts to inform, engage and inspire action on climate change. Each year CLIMARTE presents the ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE festival.
