As part of the second Climarte ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE festival, Exit, an installation New York-based architecture and art studio Diller Scofidio and Renfro, will take place at the Ian Potter Museum of Art at Melbourne University from 19 April.  

Originally comissioned by the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art in Paris, Exit uses text, project and other audiovisual methods of communication to explore the unprecedented number of migrants leaving their homes for political, economic and environmental reasons. 

Climarte CEO and co-founder Guy Abrahams said, “Now more than ever we need to find new ways to engender hope. We need to find better ways of supporting our common humanity and preserve our global commons by appealing to the angels of our better nature. Culture can’t do this alone, but without culture we can’t create the hope or the way forward. ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017 will help us to feel the problems we are facing and to embrace the solutions that are already here.”
