About the exhibition:

Responding to a recent turn to the ocean in the environmental humanities, this international exhibition considers how reflections on the ocean are aesthetically reconfigured when viewed from a contemporary urban perspective.

Ocean Imaginaries is the 5th major exhibition on themes of environmental concern expressed through the arts that RMIT Gallery and Associate Professor Linda Williams from the RMIT School of Art have cooperatively curated.

This international exhibition includes works by 20 artists responding to various perceptions of global oceans.

Featuring Anne Bevan, Emma Critchley and John Roach, Alejandro Durán, Simon Finn, Lynne Roberts-Goodwin, Chris Jordan, Sam Leach, Janet Laurence, Mariele Neudecker, Joel Rea, Dominic Redfern, Debbie Symons, Jason deCaires Taylor, teamLAB, Guido van der Werve, Chris Wainwright, Lynette Wallworth and Josh Wodack.

"Though artists have always responded to the nonhuman world, it is really only in the past three decades that environmental critique has become a major theme of contemporary art," Associate professor Williams said.

Part of CLIMARTE’s ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017 - a festival of exhibitions and events harnessing the creative power of the Arts to inform, engage and inspire action on climate change.
