The Threats Are Here

Julie Woodlock

'Provocative art that confronts climate change.'

Challenge your understanding and question your responsibilities in this garden exhibition with environmental, political and social concerns. The Threats are Here is a retrospective of Woodlock's artworks from the past decade, primarily centred on threats to the environment and campaigns that the artist has been involved in.

Woodlock encourages viewers to consider their position on a variety of issues, include the effects of climate change; responsible fishing; politicians and effective global policies; reading the signs from nature when resources are being exhausted; cleaning up the sea; and citizens taking a stand to those in power when policies are not enacted by politicians.

The pop up will also feature plein-air paintings of Magnetic Island and a simple drop-in activity for children (accompanied by adult guardians).

About the Artist

Julie Woodlock is an eco artist and activist whose concerns lie in the expansion of the port in Townsville and its impact on the Great Barrier Reef; the serious implications of breaching environmental regulations in coal mining companies such as ADANI; and the impact of pollutants and general contaminated waste which ends up as landfill. Woodlock's work is primarily mixed-media and often includes detritus, flotsam, jetsam and paint.
