Change is a collaborative exhibition between Two Rivers Gallery, the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC), and the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS) and uses the gallery’s permanent collection to offer insight, informative research and useful resources to assist in exploring solutions in regards to climate change. The exhibition consists of three parts: Past, Present and Future which each explore different aspects of our relationship to the environment and the human impact upon it. The collaboration between UNBC and Two Rivers Gallery has come to be known as Art, Change & Creativity (ACC) and has woven itself through many exhibitions this year while aiming to explore connections between art, science and creativity. At the heart of this collaboration and, in fact, Change, is a shared concern for the future and the belief that science and art can combine to great effect.
Thank you to UNBC student Carleen Paltzat who co-curated this exhibition, Zoë Meletis, Mark Groulx, UNBC and Michelle Connolly and the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions for their meaningful collaboration on this project.
