Future Knowledge at Modern Art Oxford
17th Sep 2018
Future Knowledge is a thought-provoking exhibition at Modern Art Oxford that explores the role of visual culture in continuing to raise awareness of the effects of climate change. Building upon last year’s inaugural edition, this exhibition brings together artworks, prototypes and projects by artists, designers and thinkers from a range of different disciplines, in order to showcase fascinating and diverse creative responses to environmental concerns.
Moving through the exhibition visitors will be introduced to environmental innovations, revealing new site-specific methods for understanding our domestic and local relationships to systems of production, systematic waste, and inadvertent pollution. The final gallery space will be used as a public studio, demonstrating ingenuity in the face of climate change as well as hosting events and activities that invite visitors to join in.
Future Knowledge runs from 22 September to 28 October. The exhibition is part of the nationwide project Season for Change, which invites artists and arts organisations from across the country to explore climate change through creative presentation.
