About the Exhibition

The exhibition, catalogue and associated conference seek to address questions of policy, efficacy and impact when artists work within a social, ecological and political context. The exhibition presented artworks that are, in effect, case studies in social, ecological change. This will be interpreted in terms of new ideas in dialogic aesthetics, as well as in terms of impact and efficacy at a local level.
