CLIMARTE Poster Project II commissions ten contemporary artists to each create a unique poster provoking public dialogue and accelerating a response to the unfolding climate crisis. Hundreds of the posters will be plastered around Melbourne as well as exhibited at Testing Grounds during the ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019 Festival.

The artists, based on land of the Woi wurrung and Boon wurrung people of the Kulin nation, and on Gadigal Country of the Eora nation, have created a diverse, critical and sometimes alarming collection of responses exploring decolonization, the transition to renewables, the tragedy of the commons and the impacts of climate damage.

In this second iteration of the poster project key questions have emerged: Whose voices are heard when we talk about climate change? Who has agency to act? How can we amplify the knowledge of significant and affected people and communities?

With strength, optimism and urgency, the works in the CLIMARTE Poster Project II challenge the conceptual possibilities of the poster and call for a collective effort to tackle the mess we are in. Hundreds of the posters will be displayed around Melbourne, as well as exhibited at Testing Grounds.

CLIMARTE Poster Project II is a key initiative of the ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019 festival.
