Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery posted in Exhibition
In the valley is an exhibition that highlights the beauty and fragility of our natural environment. Observing and documenting the changing landscape of significant areas of the Mornington Peninsula, artists Rosie Weiss, Jean Langley, Merryn Lloyd, Christine Lloyd, Michael Favaloro and Siri Hayes reveal their personal connections to the landscape and the strong links to place that exists across generations. Incorporated into the exhibition will be a series of climate data visualisations, inspired by the exhibition artworks, showcasing the environmental evolution over south eastern Australia. Colours are extracted and translated from selected artworks for data visualisations of environmental change from early 1900 through to future climate projections.
This project coincides with the Mornington Peninsula Shire moving towards zero net carbon emissions across all its operations by 2021 and supporting long-term climate change resilience across the community. ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019 is a socially-engaged festival of climate change related arts and ideas featuring curated exhibitions and theatre works alongside a series of keynote lectures, events and public forums featuring local and international guests.
