Taking in Water
Artists are focusing on water as a subject from environmental, political and social perspectives as well as aesthetic.
In recent years there have been many exhibitions and projects around water, wind, weather, irrigation systems, pollution, tides, waste, threats to waterways, and the nature of islands and oceans. They range from video projections to digital murals, photography, painting, installations and web sites. Art can be part of consciousness raising about the vital importance of water in the world today.
