from David Haley:


Depictions of Living –​ ​art and activism in the time of climate crisis, a group exhibition of more than seventy artists investigating the severity of the issue, comes to The Art Pavilion, Mile End23 – 28 January 2020.

Depictions of Living​ will feature more than seventy emerging artists exploring topics surrounding climate breakdown exhibited alongside artefacts from protest movements, connecting the art world and environmental movements, enmeshing art and activism in a contemporary gallery space. Ecological breakdown necessitates a wide range of approaches to encourage action. The transformative capacity of art to change society is something to be championed.

Essential to the design, the exhibition will host a range of associated talks and workshops from organisations and speakers such as Client Earth, Women’s Environmental Network, Extinction Rebellion​ and Martin Wilks​ – a chartered psychologist looking at obstacles to change, as well as a family day devoted to creative and educational activities hosted by Little House of Science.​ All events are free.

Depictions of Living will take place at:
The Art Pavilion
, Mile End, Clinton Road, London, E3 4QY.
