Climate Century - Exhibition

Kaurna Yerta/Adelaide


Exhibition: 12 November – 13 December. Opening hours: Thursdays 12-8pm (Museum open until 6pm) & Fridays–Sundays 12-5pm. Climate Century is an exhibition of multidisciplinary art works that imagine climate futures in the coastal and river environs of Port Adelaide and the LeFevre Peninsula. Presented in partnership with the SA Maritime Museum, the exhibition is the first public outcome of a five-year project (2014-2018) inviting artists to work with communities, scientists, environmentalists and others, to respond to the provocation: how will we commemorate and memorialise the climate century? Informed by the insight and foresight of local environmentalists, commissioned artists have conjured surprising, intriguing and beautiful interpretations of climate change that range from the melancholic to the utopian. The visual art, sound and live art works are presented alongside a month of public events and talks. Pick up the exhibition guide at the SA Maritime Museum or download from (all exhibition venues/sites easy walking distance from SAMM). Artist-run tours & talks: each Thursday, 5-7pm. Meet at Adventuress Textiles, 116 Lipson St, Port Adelaide. Climate Futures: a different event each Sundays, 2-4pm (except Sunday 15 November).
