I’d like to invite you to view an online exhibition called ‘AER’ at the greenmuseum, featuring artworks that look critically at the issue of air quality and use various methods to raise awareness of the issue among the public. Because air is invisible, artists are faced with the challenge of making the intangible real. Because air pollution is a silent killer, artists are challenged to give a voice to the body’s dependence on clean air. Most of the featured projects blur the line between art and activism, and all the artists are changing public understanding of the air around us, questioning accepted norms of ownership of and responsibility to the air we must breathe to live.
Here is the url: http://www.greenmuseum.org/c/aer/
There are some very interesting works, and we have included a short survey about air quality and art that I hope to use in an analysis of the show. If you have a few minutes, check out the show and give some responses on the survey.
