Greenhouse Britain: Losing Ground, Gaining Wisdom
An exhibition that addresses Global Warming in Britain from the artist’s perspective

The Harrison Studio has available a travelling exhibition during the autumn of 2007 and spring/summer of 2008 that addresses the Global Warming phenomenon from an artist’s perspective. The Harrison Studio proposes nothing less than an alternate narrative about how one might withdraw as waters rise, what new forms of settlement might look like and what the content, or properties that a new cultural landscape might have in response to Global Warming.

The exhibition contains a multimedia video projection onto a physical model of the island of Britain with the waters rising and an 8 minute associated narrative. There are also striking two meter tall graphic images addressing the consequences of the rising of waters, as well as wall texts, drawings and sketches.

The exhibition requires a minimum of 800 square feet. The ceiling should be a minimum of 10 feet tall and able to accommodate a small video projector rack. The exhibition will be available from September 2007.

Venues are sought for not less than two weeks; venues should be able to provide a fee, modest installation support, as well as insurance, and reasonable supervision, including undertaking audience research. The exhibition comes with a brochure-poster.

This exhibition is a collaboration between artists and academics from the UK and USA. It is funded by the DEFRA Climate Challenge Fund.
