Melting Ice - Hot Topic

05 June 2007–03 Sept 2007

The international contemporary art exhibition on climate change featured 80 works of art by 42 artists from 23 countries.

The exhibition was a result of the fact that UNEP asked Norway to be the host of World Environment Day 2007. When the exhibition travelled on, in October 2007 at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels, it then moved on to Chicago and Monaco in 2008 and 2009.

The exhibition aims to help increase the awareness about global warming and climate change, and stimulate positive attitude changes and environmental efforts.

The Main Hall was filled with 80 artworks by 42 contemporary artists from 23 countries. The artworks have one thing in common: they address the climate changes envoked by humans. The expressions span from paintings, sculptures and photographs to interactive installations, a Japanese tea house and a survival canoe.

The exhibition was arranged in cooperation with the Natural World Museum, UN Environmental Programme (UNEP), the Norwegian Ministry of Environment, Norwegian Ministry of Culture and NSB.
