We are now in an era of HEAT: the Earth is quite literally heating up, with new global temperature records set every month and year, but there is also a warming of interest in more climate-friendly ways to live. HEAT: Solar Revolutions is an art event that asks how the sun’s energy may  catalyse climate-friendly conversations, collective actions, speculations and interventions.

HEAT will feature a number of artists from around New Zealand and abroad. HEAT is the third iteration of the Oceanic Performance Biennial, an event that explores local ecologies through performative practices. Aligned with HEAT are a range of community action events.

Exhibition and performance programme: Joyce Hinterding and David Haines, Rachel Shearer, Saskia Schut, Monique Jansen, Public Share, Janine Randerson with Tru Paraha, Roseanne Bartley,  Natalie Robertson, Amanda Yates with Harold Barton, Christina Houghton and Maria O’Connor.

Screening Programme: Hanna Tai, Mohini Chandra, Mark Harvey, Sam Trubridge and Sasha Grbich.
