Ecologies of change is a collaboration between artists from Australia and the Printmakers Council UK. Supported by the PMC and the Royal Overseas League, the exhibition will be shown at ROSL. The project is curated by Clare Humphries (Australia) Jacki Baxter and Venessa Pugh (UK).
Exhibition Introduction.Ecologies of change invited artists to visualise their response to a shift in consciousness as we recognise the impact and consequences of human activity on Earth’s ecosystems.
In 2021 the International Commission on Stratigraphy is set to formally define a new slice of geologic record, the Anthropocene, to mark the profound ways in which humans have altered the planet. The Anthropocene identifies a new period in which humans have become the dominant bio-geo-physical force shaping the world.
At a time of profound change, Ecologies of Change forms a conversation across the hemispheres. The project brings together artists who share an ethics of care for Earth’s ecosystems. It invites them to take stock of the Anthropocene and to share visions of both loss and hope for change.
The exhibition will be held at ROSL 16th September – 26th November 2021.
