Metamorphosis: The Changing Landscape /  Katherine Fleming Curatorial Statement

As the founder and director of Bridge Initiative, a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering collaboration between artists and scientists for environmental advocacy, I am honored to serve as juror for “Metamorphosis: The Changing Landscape.” This exhibition is not just a showcase of artistic talent; it is a testament to the power of interdisciplinary collaboration to drive meaningful change.

Drawing upon my experience in bridging the gap between art and science, I have curated a selection of works that delve deep into the heart of our planet’s transformation. Through the lens of artists who are deeply engaged with environmental advocacy, we explore the multifaceted impacts of climate change, urbanization, and technology on our natural world.

At Bridge Initiative, we believe in the power of art to transcend boundaries and ignite conversations. “Metamorphosis” is a testament to this belief, as artists and viewers alike are invited to contemplate the intricate interplay between humanity and the environment. Each artwork serves as a mirror reflecting the complexities of our changing landscape, challenging us to confront the urgent realities of our time with empathy and creativity.

From the poignant beauty of endangered ecosystems to the stark realities of urban sprawl, these artworks offer a glimpse into the past, present, and future of our planet. They remind us of our shared responsibility to protect and preserve the diversity of life on Earth.
