POSTER PROJECTS PAST & PRESENT
POSTERS remain 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 Projects have visited Melbourne’s streets since 2016 provoking public dialogue and accelerating a response to climate change. With strength, optimism and urgency, these projects aim to push the conceptual possibilities of the poster, finding new ways for contemporary artists to critically engage the public on the climate crisis.

P.P.P.P. is a retrospective of the POSTERS CLIMARTE has produced with the support of the City of Melbourne. It explores the diverse and imaginative ways in which artists convey their feelings about climate change issues: from the didactic to numinous, graphic to abstracted. And yet they all point to the necessity and benefits of transforming from an economy and lifestyle based on extractive and exploitative practices to one that is healthy and regenerative; clean, waste free and powered by renewable energy.

Artists include: Eugenia Lim, Sam Wallman, Amy Spiers, Clare McCracken, Julia Ciccarone, Jen Rae, Peter Waples-Crow, Kelly Doley, Salote Tawale, Dean Cross, Angela Brennan, Chris Bond, Jon Campbell, Kate Daw, Katherine Hattam, Siri Hayes, Martin King, Gabrielle de Vietri & Will Foster, Thornton Walker, Miles Howard-Wilks, Olga Dziemidowicz, Autumn Tansy, Gustavo Morales, Tai Snaith, Judy Kuo, Laura Wills, Donna Davis, Simon Welsh and Studio 29B.
