> DESCRIPTION

Climate of Uncertainty features 12 artists engaged in long-term projects that address the human role in environmental degradation. Photographers document issues ranging from the destructive effects of extractive industry to the effect of careless waste disposal on animal populations; installation artists provide a participatory and immersive experience around deforestation and the enormous consequences of large-scale damming. Works included in the exhibition reveal ways that individuals, industries and governments have exploited, abused or are depleting natural resources, but artists also explore alternative approaches to environmental issues by challenging the viewer to imagine a more hopeful future.

Featured artists include: Marissa Benedict, Edward Burtynsky, Terry Evans, Sonja Hinrichsen, Allison Grant, Chris Jordan, Maskull Lasserre, Marilyn Propp, Sabrina Raaf, Christina Seely, Daniel Shea, and Toshio Shibata.
