In 2009, a fantastic exhibition was presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego to help artists from around the globe answer these 2 key questions. Artists Responding to a Changing Planet was a pioneering artist residency and collaborative exhibition project that, for the first time on this scale, used contemporary art to investigate the changing nature of some of the most biodiverse regions on earth and the communities that inhabit those regions.
Through harnessing the power of art, the artists and organizers build global support for the protection of environmental biodiversity, and to create a new model promoting conservation worldwide. The project addressed many themes, including: the relationship between the natural environment and human culture; assumptions about the value of preserving biological and cultural diversity; and global exploration and exchange.
