LINKED: When Contemporary Art Creates Awareness About Climate Change

An interesting exhibition (apparently not coming to a venue near us in USA) is currently showing in Europe.

LINKED: When Contemporary Art Creates Awareness About Climate Change, an exhibit from the Cerny Inuit Collection in Bern, Switzerland, is drawn from the Collection’s more than 1,000 pieces of contemporary Inuit art.

A brief article by Susan Hoffman Fishman describes the exhibition, provides some illustrative works (including interesting Floyd Kuptana, David Ruben Piqtoukun, and Abraham Anghik Ruben sculptures), and gives some background on the issues of climate change in the Arctic and the genesis of the Cerny collection in Switzerland.  It’s not a substitute for seeing the exhibition, but it’s a start, anyway. Here’s the link to Ms Fishman’s article.
