Profiling the work of voyagers traveling with the Cape Farewell touring exhibition, 'Unfold' also offers essays by experts and critical thinkers from both the sciences and the arts, discussing current debates surrounding global warming and our changing world.
auUnfold" exhibits the work of twenty-five artists who have participated in the Cape Farewell expeditions in 2007 and 2008 to the High Arctic and in 2009 to the Andes. Each artist witnessed firsthand the dramatic and fragile environmental tipping points of climate change. Their innovative, independent and collective responses explore the physical, emotional and political dimensions of our complex and changing world stressed by profligate human activity. This body of work addresses a new process of thinking where artists play an informed and significant role through creating a cultural shift, a challenge to evolve and inspire a symbiotic contract with our spiritual and physical world.
