It's a weighty topic, and one that's unavoidable in our daily lives, even if we're not always actively thinking about it. What impact has humanity had upon the earth? How has our relationship with the world around us changed? And, as we consume more and more natural resources, is the planet still plentiful?
They're the questions at the heart of Brisbane Powerhouse's latest exhibition, Plenty, which takes over the venue's walls from September 27 to October 23. Peruse your eyes over pieces influenced by ecological crisis, as created by prominent and emerging Australian artists.
Curated by Griffith Uni's Associate Professor Marian Drew, Plenty forms part of RONA16: the Rights of Nature Australia National Arts Fiesta. The country-wide event contemplates the connection between people and nature via a host of different creative activities — including a showcase of art crafted by school kids from natural objects, called Home, at Nundah's Neighbourhood Centre from October 7 to 9.
