ClimateExpo ’22

The makers had determined what ClimateExpo ’22 looked like: the exhibition had been put together by open registration and an anonymous selection. From 2200 works of art, 251 works were chosen by a large, mixed jury. All contemporary visual art forms were represented at ClimateExpo ’22: from painting to outdoor sculptures, from models to photography, and everything in between. The only condition was the theme: climate change.

Sometimes intuitively, sometimes rationally, the participating artists showed how climate change affected our existence, and what the consequences were for our immediate environment, the city, the landscape, animals, and our way of life. This exhibition exemplified the profound interconnectedness between art and society, illustrating how art serves as an essential vehicle for mutual understanding among individuals. The exhibition attracted 48,000 visitors.

The exhibition was accompanied by a handy pocket-sized catalog designed by design agency 75B from Rotterdam and sustainably produced by the printing company Libertas Pascal from Utrecht.

A variant of ZomerExpo

ClimateExpo’ 22 is the result of ZomerExpo and is organized by ArtWorlds in collaboration with Museum de Fundatie. ZomerExpo is a national sales exhibition of contemporary art in a Dutch museum, consisting of works of art that have been selected anonymously after open registration. The summer event, first launched in 2011, attracts a large crowd and is a great barometer of diverse tastes.
