Clare McCracken, Get There In A Canter, 2019 A0 poster

Posters are a dynamic form of communication. From propaganda to grassroots organising, from infographics to memes, from advertising to subvertising, posters have informed, influenced, mocked, roused and inspired generation after generation.

The CLIMARTE Poster Project II is about provoking public dialogue and accelerating a response to climate change. With strength, optimism and urgency, it pushes the conceptual possibilities of the poster, finding new ways for contemporary artists to critically engage the public on climate change.

Over 1000 posters will be pasted on walls throughout inner Melbourne and feature in an exhibition at Testing Ground.

CLIMARTE’s second iteration of the Poster Project is a key initiative of the biennial ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019 festival.
