Climate Century

In the first iteration of Vitalstatistix’s long-term project Climate Century, we present an exhibition of multidisciplinary art works that imagine climate futures in the coastal and river environs of Port Adelaide and the LeFevre Peninsula.

Informed by the insight and foresight of local environmentalists, commissioned artists have conjured surprising, intriguing and beautiful interpretations of climate change that range from the melancholic to the utopian. The visual art, sound and live art works are presented alongside a month of public events and talks.

Presented in partnership with the SA Maritime Museum, the exhibition is the first public outcome of a five-year project (2014—2018) inviting artists to work with communities, scientists, environmentalists and others, to respond to the provocation: how will we commemorate and memorialise the climate century?
