What does it mean to love nature when many of us doubt that it still exists? – We Make Money Not Art

When landscapes are artificialised, when the distinction between natural and man-made catastrophes is increasingly blurred and when biotechnology designs living species to satisfy our capitalistic and aesthetic whims? How pristine does nature have to be in order to gain our respect? Does nature even exist?

The three Ecophilia exhibitions of the ongoing Meta.Morf 2022 biennale for art and technology in Trondheim present artists who critically investigate the surprising manifestations that our ecophilia -our deep desire to connect with nature- can take.

A Cultural Centre for Queensland: The proposals

Since the Queensland Art Gallery opened at South Bank on 21 June 1982, the Cultural Centre has evolved into the arts and culture centrepiece of Queensland. The Queensland Art Gallery celebrates 40 years at South Bank in 2022, and together with the Cultural Centre, are architecturally significant and demonstrate the evolution of modern landscape architecture in the State.
