Thought Foundation is launching our third Thoughtful Planet Exhibition. We are looking for artists who explore climate change and environmental issues in their artwork. All media is welcome including film, sculpture, drawing, painting, sound and performance. Please note we would need to discuss with the artist larger scale installations or sculptors, as our gallery is a multiuse space.
Thought Foundation has been highlighting environmental issues since we opened in 2017. Our signature Thoughtful Planet exhibitions have explored many issues from the mass of plastic in our oceans, the decline of bees and deforestation.
World-leading climate scientists have warned there are only a dozen years to keep the rising global temperate from increasing. From this point, a catastrophic chain of events will result in drought, wildfires, floods, extreme heat, famine and poverty for hundreds of millions of people.
Thought Foundation feels our emphasis on this subject is more important than ever. The third instalment of Thoughtful Planet exhibition aims to highlight major environmental issues in order to give a platform to creative voices and educate our visitors about these world issues.
We are looking for artists who explore climate change and environmental issues in their artwork. All media is welcome including film, sculpture, drawing, painting, sound and performance. Please note we would need to discuss with the artist larger scale installations or sculptors, as our gallery is a multiuse space.
We can not drill into the walls.
We use a hanging system, please bear in mind if you are going to frame your work you need the correct attachment to hang the work correctly no mirror plates, 2 x D rings and good quality string would be preferred.
We don't currently have funding to pay artists participating in the exhibition at present. However we are looking for funding for the exhibition to be in September (exact date TBC) and if we are successful we will be paying artists for their time and contribution.
