Jake Holmes: Writing the climate

South Australian artist Jake Holmes employs mediums such as screen printing, mural painting and illustration to interrogate contemporary social and political issues.

In response to Flinders University Art Museum’s extensive Australian Political Poster collection, Holmes aims to re-contextualise 1980s environmentalism for our current time. For The Collections Project, his new body of work gives voice to the emotional, nihilistic anxiety felt by today’s youth towards their uncertain futures.

The Collections Project is a collaboration between Guildhouse and Flinders University Art Museum that provides artists with the opportunity to engage with the Museum’s collections and staff to create new work for exhibition.

Writing the climate will be on show from October 7 – November 30 at Flinders University.
