Art Not Oil

12:00 am in Exhibition by bloc

Date: 05.10.05 – 28.10.05
Website: http://www.artnotoil.org.uk
Location: england

Outline:

FREE PUBLIC OPENING WEDNESDAY 19:00 5 OCTOBER 2005

Climate chaos is set to have a catastrophic effect on all of us, while hitting the poorest hardest. Oil is a curse that also fuels war, poverty and environmental destruction. Yet the companies most responsible are profiting handsomely, and they are still welcome it seems in many of our most prestigious public galleries and museums. Why?

As the BP Portrait Award settles in at the Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens (7 October – 27 November 2005), its alter ego Art Not Oil comes to the Forth Hotel to offer up what could be a truer portrait of an oil company, as well as celebrating our creative dissent. Catch both if you can, then make up your own mind.

This is a rolling exhibition, so send your art to Art Not Oil (whether or not you`re an artist):
