DesignTO juried exhibition “Forecast”
‘Forecast’ is a group exhibition featuring the work of nine local and international artists and designers exploring themes related to the climate crisis specifically as it relates to the weather and how environmental changes impact communities on a global scale. Featuring Christina Battle, Gordon Brent Brochu-Ingram, Vardit Goldner, Grace Grothaus (Digital Media PhD student) , Lisa Hirmer, Malu Luecking, Joel Ong (DCA faculty), Daisy Pearson, and Allison Rowe, this multidisciplinary exhibition includes a broad range of work in video, photography, sculpture, installation, textiles and speculative design to capture, critique and investigate the current realities of and future solutions to living with the consequences of the temperature rising. These artists and designers respond to their experiences of climate change by indexing them to human activities, looking to the past and present for weather patterns, forecasting future activities and environments, and speculating on how we can move forward under this terrifying and complex reality.
