23 January - 11 February 2012

Metro Gallery warmly invites you to our Climate Change exhibition 23rd Jan - 11th Feb, 2012.

"A creative response to a social problem is something that's always avoided or evaded or not trusted. But art has an impact in a way that figures and theories don't. It can express the inexpressible and when you add emotion to thought, you bring resolution a step closer." - Ann McCulloch, Deakin University Professor.

When words and science fail, could art hold the answer to tackling climate change?

In the first exhibition of its kind, nine of Australia's leading artists will take on the role of problem solvers in the highly anticipated show, Climate Change, which will explore the power of art to cut through political dialogue and scientific debate.

The exhibition will feature large scale works by John Olsen, Daniel Smith, Deborah Walker, John Forrest, E.L.K., JKB Fletcher, Michael Peck, Stormie Mills, Ben Howe and Vincent Fantauzzo. Their creative process was filmed over several months as part of a long term documentary by award winning film maker Alan Woodruff and Deakin University Professor, Ann McCulloch. The documentary will be previewed at Metro Gallery before its international screening in New York and a tour of regional Australian in late 2012.
