The Climate Is Changing!
This exhibition explores the theme of climate change; one of the most pressing issues facing the world today. With implications not only for the delicate ecological balance of the planet, but also for human society, the actions we take now in our daily lives will affect both our and our children’s future. The work in the exhibition reflects how the individual artists view the subject; inspired perhaps by changes seen in their local environment or internationally.
Organised by the International Feltmakers Association, Filz-Netzwerk e.V (Germany) and Coordinamento Tessitori (Italy), 50 artists from 12 countries were selected from a total of 180 submissions by an independent professional jury. The exhibition opened at the Museo del Tessuto, Prato, Italy in May 2010 and then toured Germany until February 2011. It is now touring the UK until June 2012.
The exhibition is accompanied by a full colour catalogue covering every artist and their work, which is available to buy at this venue.
