The Cross Art Projects

Jasmin Stephens, Curator of Composing Archipelagos (Contemporary Art Tasmania, Hobart, 2021)

RISE 2 adopts the format of a long essay to frame artists’ stories about rising sea levels and the raw kinetic power of water: ferocious, beautiful, hell-bent. Today’s seas are dark, as rising water converges with global frames of ecocide, genocide, land rights, corruption and fossil-fuel mining: the oppressive outcomes of colonialism—including present-day corporate colonialism. The artists depict our unstable geopolitical region as their works eddy from art as awareness-raising poetics to tongue-in-cheek diplomacy to forensic analysis.

We invite you to join in these considerations at this powerful exhibition.
