Nature/Revelation

31-03-2015 @ 9:00 am - 12-07-2015 @ 5:00 pm

nature-revelation

Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm, Saturday – Sunday 12 – 5pm

Climate change and its devastating impact on the earth’s many ecosystems is arguably today’s most critical global issue. Nature/Revelation celebrates the unique capacity art has to cut through prevailing rhetoric to stimulate individuals both intellectually and emotionally in the face of current environmental issues. Focusing on contemporary notions of nature and the sublime, the exhibition affirms that the world we live in offers moments of revelation, and that nature can provoke a range of associations—both fantastical and grounded—that profoundly affect us.

Nature/Revelation features international and Australian artists who are engaged with poetic and philosophical concerns, and whose work offers potentially enlightening experiences that energise our relationship to the natural world. Artists include Ansel Adams, Jonathan Delafield Cook, David Hanies, Andrew Hazewinkel and Susan Jacobs, Jamie North, Mel O’Callahan, Gabriel Orozco and Berndnaut Smilde. The exhibition also raises questions about concepts of nature and culture following the arguments of philosopher Timothy Morton.

The University of Melbourne, with the Potter as project leader, is the Principal Knowledge Partner of the Climarte program.
