Exploration Architecture


Future Knowledge : Modern Art Oxford

Future Knowledge is a thought-provoking exhibition exploring the role of visual culture in continuing to raise awareness of the effects of climate change. Building upon last year’s inaugural edition (20 May – 25 June 2017), this exhibition brings together artworks, prototypes and projects by artists, designers and thinkers from a range of different disciplines, in order to showcase fascinating and diverse creative responses to environmental concerns.

The final gallery space will be used as a public studio, demonstrating ingenuity in the face of climate change as well as hosting events and activities that invite visitors to join in. Prototypes and working models on display include pioneering architectural biomimicry by Michael Pawlyn of Exploration Architecture, demonstrating the design and production of materials, structures and systems that are modelled on biological entities and processes.

Future Knowledge is part of the nationwide project Season for Change, which invites artists and arts organisations from across the country to explore climate change through creative presentation.
