On Monday Rob and I will be down in London visiting the Palace of Westminster. We have just found out that we have been successful in our application to hold a temporary exhibition there.
The application process started over 3 years ago . We are delighted to have the opportunity to showcase a small collection of artwork in this historic venue at the centre of political life in the United Kingdom.
The theme of the exhibition is climate change.
We'll be exhibiting in the Upper Waiting Hall, just off the Committee Corridor leading to the House of Commons.
A selection of artworks from our upcoming Extinction Collection, highlighting climate change in Happisburgh, the home of Explorers Against Extinction, will be on display for MPs. Happisburgh is the site of the earliest known human occupation in the UK, dating back 900,000 years. It will be one of the first UK communities lost to coastal erosion.
We will also be showcasing three On the Brink artworks featuring specific species impacted by climate change around the world, showcasing the work of some of our project partners.
The exhibition will run from Monday 15 April to Friday 19 April.
