Exhibition looks at climate change crisis

CLIMATE change will be put in the spotlight at a new exhibition opening later this month.

As the landscapes, weather, and people’s way of life changes with the environmental crisis, a new exhibition from West Yorkshire Print Workshop, entitled Our World, Our Crisis, comes to The Point in Doncaster from April 17.

It aims to asks questions about how we live and reflects on the passing of time, our changing landscape and our relationship with it.

Works have been selected from printmakers, film makers and textile artists, questions arise about how our places have changed and how we look at our natural world.

Artists taking part include Tracy Hill, Andrew Warburton, Liadin Cooke, Sarah Duncan, Jemma Gunning and Clare Carter.

The works on display include representations of fires in the Amazon and a hand-tufted rug which draws attention to the increase of colossal icebergs, breaking off from Antarctica in “calving events” as a result of climate change. Changes to UK landscapes are also represented, including the threat to our wetlands from urbanisation and perceptions of wetlands as “wasted lands”, as well as the threat to our woodlands from HS2.

Our World, Our Crisis is a touring exhibition by West Yorkshire Print Workshop.
