A project by UNESCO-MOST – C.I.P.S.H – Mémoire de l’Avenir
In partnership with ikonotv, Platforme Planet Earth has a dedicated channel to publish climate change themed art. It will include original content and a selection of our artists’ existing work – to be shown as video or short films.
Now through the end of July, 2021, there will be two consecutive promotions, with the “user reviews” of all audience voting on the site. The highest scoring pieces will qualify and be part of the exhibition – taking place in October 2021.
In addition to the people’s choice selections, the fall exhibition will feature curated content from all online listings (submissions), for the gallery-represented artists, with separate categories for solo/amateur artists or submission without a gallery.
All pieces must fit in one of the nine categories, selected by the artist at the time of submission:
Land – from Mountains to Deserts
Air and Sky
Space – our Cosmos and Beyond
People and Construction
People and Migration
Once the final winners have been selected, and the exhibition created, it will headline the Platforme Planet Earth website and all marketing outreach for 3 to 6 months.
The exhibition will be produced as a short film- including images of the winning submissions. Each of the nine climate change categories will be included in the video, thereby telling the story of climate change in 2021. A high-impact audio-visual presentation of “Art for Climate Change” will premier in October, 2021. Partnering in Paris at 193 Gallery – where all selected artists will be invited to join us .
All qualified submissions can be sent to the Platforme Planet Earth website now through July 31, 2021.
