This is a collection of art projects related to the climate crisis and climate justice. If you have any suggestions for additions to this collection, let me know.
- Artists and Climate Change is a blog that celebrates artists who explore the intersection of arts & climate change. The goal of this blog is to track these works and gather them in one place. It is both a study of what is being done, and a resource for anyone interested in the subject. They deeply believe that what artists have to say about climate change will shape our values and behavior for years to come. For that reason alone, we should pay attention.
- The Tempestry Project blends fiber art with temperature data to create a bridge between global climate and our own personal experiences through knitted or crocheted temperature tapestries, or “Tempestries.” Each Tempestry represents the daily high temperature for a given year and location, January at the bottom and December at the top (think bar graphs!), all using the same yarn colors and temperature ranges (see the Tempestry Project site for details).
- 12 Artists on Climate Change features a dozen artistic responses to the climate crisis. For the third installment of their series T Agitprop, T Magazine (the New York Times style magazine) asked 12 contemporary artists, including Alexis Rockman, Mel Chin, Erin Jane Nelson and the members of the collective Dear Climate, to contribute works, most of them new and created exclusively for T, in response to this global emergency.
- 10 Artists Tackling Climate Change features the work of 10 contemporary artists who are impactful leaders in the climate art space.
- Resilience in the Age of Climate Change is a Google Arts & Culture project featuring the work of visionary artists and architects exploring the specter of a warming planet.
