The Colour of the Climate Crisis is an exhibition by Naresh Ramchandani’s environmental social initiative Do The Green Thing which showcases the work of 24 Black artists and artists of colour exploring the relationship between racial injustice and climate injustice.
The exhibition brings together works from established and emerging talent, including Mona Chalabi, Wilfred Ukpong, Tré Seals, Eddie Opara, Abeer Seikaly, Ngadi Smart and Wong Ka Ying.
The exhibition is a response to Do The Green Thing’s issue The Colour of the Climate Crisis by journalist and activist Minnie Rahman, cataloguing the ways that Black people, Indigenous people and other people of colour are most affected by, most at risk from and least responsible for the world’s crisis of climate and nature.
To coincide with the start of the global climate summit, Cop26, The Colour of the Climate Crisis will be on show until 2 November 2021 at Pipe Factory in Glasgow and online at thecolouroftheclimatecrisis.art. Further gallery exhibitions will take place in London and New York City in 2022.
