Artists against apocalypse set for talk this weekend
Artists displaying their work in the ground-breaking Anthropocene exhibition at Octavia Hill’s Birthplace House in Wisbech are set to tell the story of their creative response to environmental catastrophe.
Members of the Precious Earth Art Collective will explain the background to the works that are on show at the museum at 7 South Brink, which reflect their reaction to the environmental crises that the earth is facing and their attempt to raise awareness of the disaster they believe is brewing.
The title of the exhibition, ‘Anthropocene: of our own making’, is taken from the name given to the current geological period, meaning the age of mankind, and points up the striking impact which the human race is having on ecosystems and natural resources across the planet.
