press release

Last week of Climate Exhibition The last day of the exhibition "Envisioning Change: Melting Ice A Hot Topic" is Sunday 2 September. The international contemporary art exhibition on climate change features 80 works of art by 42 artists from 23 countries.

The exhibition is a result of the fact that UNEP asked Norway to be the host of World Environment Day 2007. When the exhibition travels on, it will from October 2007 be on display at Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels, then moving on to Chicago and Monaco in 2008 and 2009.

The exhibition aims to help increase the awareness about global warming and climate change, and stimulate positive attitude changes and environmental efforts.

From 5 June until 2 September the Main Hall is filled with 80 artworks by 42 contemporary artists from 23 countries. The artworks have one thing in common: they address the climate changes envoked by humans. The expressions span from paintings, sculptures and photographs to interactive installations, a Japanese tea house and a survival canoe.

The exhibition is in cooperation with the Natural World Museum, UN Environmental Programme (UNEP), the Norwegian Ministry of Environment, Norwegian Ministry of Culture and NSB.
