An exhibition examining the economics, politics, ownership and contested nature of global water supplies in the era of climate change. In our every day lives we take water for granted as a supply from the tap, a place for leisure and asa basic human right. Over the next forty years, predictions intimate that water will be as contended as oil now is in the post-industrial and developing countries.
This exhibition explores some of the issues and challenges that we face in meeting the increased
demand for water. It also raises questions around how waterwaysand sources become both a place
of contemplation and conflict.STILL also incorporates commissioned new writing and excerpts from existing texts on personal connections to important rivers and waterways in the UK,including contributions from Roger Deakin, Bronac Ferran, Tom King,Deborah Mulhearn and Rob Smith.
Metal was founded by Jude Kelly OBE in 2002 and was created as an artistic laboratory to champion the need for continual investment in artistic investigation and the development of innovative ideas that could shift the thinking in the UK cultural sector.
We provide innovative, multi-disciplinary residency space for artists from the UK and overseas in Liverpool and Southend on Sea.
Alongside providing space for artists and thinkers to develop their ideas and further the philosophy of their work, we are interested in how this artistic process, and the practice of artists can input into, and potentially influence political and social issues of the day.
Through our artistic programme we draw out evidence and ideas for a better understanding of the artist’s role in civic life, and ensure that these are shared with a wide and diverse set of partners.
These ideas are showcased and disseminated on a regular basis through residencies, exhibitions, events, performance, discussion and publications.
