MARS Gallery are proud to join Climarte 'Art + Climate = Change' 2019, with new exhibitions from four contemporary Australian artists that each contemplate the theme of climate change.

The group exhibition opens Thursday 18 April 5-7pm, and will span across all four levels of the gallery, including the rooftop sculpture garden which offers expansive views of Windsor.

Maudie Palmer presents her video work Birrarung, a filmic composition that follows the Yarra River from its source in rural Victoria to the seaport of Melbourne. Former director at Heide Museum of Modern Art and the Tarra Warra Museum of Art, Palmer produced the work to celebrate the river as an inspiration for art and culture.

Known as the Birrarung to its traditional owners, the Wurundjeri People, this powerful mediation on Victoria's most prominent natural landmark showcases its subtle majesty whilst highlighting threats posed by human indifference.

MARS will be one of over thirty leading Victorian galleries to join Climarte 2019, a socially engaged festival of curated exhibitions and events that unite art and activism.
