The Canary Project: Works on Climate Change 2006-2009
September 4– October 9, 2010

Renowned as innovators in the field of interdisciplinary and activist art, The Canary Project produces visual media and artworks about the single issue of climate change. This exhibit brought together works by the principal members of the Canary Project, Edward Morris and Susannah Sayler, and more than a dozen Canary Project artists. Collectively these works explore ways in which the prospect of catastrophic climate change challenges the limits of human comprehension and agency. The exhibition proposed that these challenges can be a source of inspiration, melancholic beauty, engagement or defeat.

This project was partially supported by Indiana University’s New Frontiers in the Arts & Humanities Program, funded by the Lilly Endowment, Inc., and administered by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, and the College Arts and Humanities Institute in the College of Arts and Sciences at Indiana University.
