Event Details

On the occasion of the COP28 Climate Conference, taking place in Dubai, UAE, Art of Change 21 and Alserkal Initiatives are excited to collaborate and present the climate-related exhibition “Melting Point” by the French-Swiss artist Julian Charrière. On view at Alserkal Avenue, the show brings to light rarely seen perspectives of our planet’s polar regions.

Though glaciers have never before had such a strong presence in our collective imagination or global media, Charrière presents them here anew, staging a kaleidoscopic vision of these environments at a critical point.

For this action at COP28, a tripartite collaboration unites Julian Charrière, a renowned and emblematic climate-engaged artist, Art of Change 21, a non-profit organisation on art & environment which has curated art shows and events in each Climate COP since 2015, and Alserkal Initiatives, a Dubai-based socially responsible cultural enterprise. The “Melting Point” exhibition is supported by R3, Maison Ruinart, Fondation LAccolade and Epson, and is part of Art of Change 21’s “Art at COP28” programming.
