NeMe and curator Oliver Ressler are pleased to invite you to the exhibition opening of Flood Tide of Resistance on Friday, October 7 at 7:30 pm.
The worldwide scope and visibility of the environmental movements reflect the terrifying global scale of the threat and also the unprecedented social breadth and depth of collective determination to counteract it. Millions of people determined to prevent total planetary climate collapse – to preserve the Earth as habitat for future generations – are joining the climate justice movements and collectively taking action.
This is also true of many artists, more and more of whom have shown over the last few years that they no longer regard climate breakdown merely as “subject matter” for their works. Climate activism does not only take place as a land-locked form of resistance, but in the past few years has also expanded to the sea. One of the most impressive examples are the activities of No Grandi Navi in Venice.
This exhibition brings together artists who produce their works in dialogue with the climate justice movements related to both land and sea, in which they consider themselves participants.
