This paper discusses curating and interpreting visual art using a multi-disciplinary focus. It addresses current environmental changes through the lens of the social-politic context of art and culture. I am interested in how art can transmit meaning, and how art may have the power to mobilise consumers to a greener more sustainable future. Regime shift is a theoretic ecological concept, which is concerned with a sharp change from one contrasting environmental state to another. I will suggest that artists and curators are potentially influential in ecological mitigation responses. The talk will conclude with a presentation of the work of artists, Natalie Jeremijenko and Azuma Makoto.
