Art and Climate Change, published by Thames & Hudson, is an introduction to ecologically conscious contemporary art. Authors Maja and Reuben Fowkes have compiled a collection of works that explore mass extinction, destroyed nature and devastated landscapes, as well as the social problems and injustice caused by climate change. The artists in the book are bound together by a deep concern for the planet and the future of all living creatures.
The book is part of Thames & Hudson's World of Art series. Each volume in the series focuses on a particular art form, artist, or genre.
Global awareness of climate change is increasing, and the scientific evidence is incontrovertible: an environmental crisis is upon us. Art and Climate Change presents an overview of ecologically conscious contemporary art that addresses the climate emergency, as artists across the world call for an active, collective engagement with the planet, and illuminate some of the structures that threaten humanity’s survival.
