‘Critical Limit’ presents works from the City of Yarra arts collection and beyond with an environmental focus.

Across moving image, photography, painting, prints and sculpture the works explore issues contributing to the climate emergency and its impact on our animal life and natural ecologies. ‘Critical Limit’ looks to our artists to gain knowledge, express our concerns, and find solutions. ‘Critical Limit’ is an impassioned response to this urgent call for collective action.

Featuring artists Alice Duncan, Michael Fikaris, Kathy Holowko, Leila Jeffries, Kent Morris, Felix Wilson, with collection artists Alexis Beckett, Extinction Rebellion, Sally Gabori, Silvi Glattauer, Christine Johnson, Cameron Robbins, Wendy Stavrianos, John Wolseley, and Jessi Wong.

Where: Climarte Gallery 120 Bridge Road, Richmond
When: Thursday 4 August – Saturday 3 September
Exhibition launch Thursday 11 August, 6-7.30pm
