Non-profit organization SaveArtSpace has connected with independent curators Anne Verhallen and Daria Borisova to launch an outdoor exhibition on billboards across the United Kingdom. Entitled “RESTORATION: NOW or NEVER,” the public installment aims to bring attention to the world’s climate crisis while presenting artworks outdoors — arriving at a time when arts spaces and cultural institutions have restricted viewing due to COVID-19.

Participating artists include Stefan Bruggemann, Zhang Huan, Tabita Rezaire, Coco Capitán, Wang Yuyang, Fred Tomaselli, Formafantasma, Olive Allen and Khari Turner. The artworks, which will vary in composition, will be presented across prominent London advertisement spaces, like billboards, kiosks and bus shelters, for one month.

“The mission of this independent project is to raise awareness of climate crisis issues like global warming, to give artists in all stages of their career a platform to to express concern and leadership, and to bring art to the public after a year of closed gallery and museum spaces,” as per a press statement.

“RESTORATION: NOW or NEVER” will launch in conjunction with World Environment Day on June 5 in the UK. The curators are choosing artists who create work in response to climate change, calls for restorative action or suggests a path forward. The open call for artists to apply to showcase their work for this outdoor exhibition is currently open through April 19. Visit SaveArtSpace’s website for more information.

Elsewhere in art, artist Ekene Ijeoma unveiled a new Breathing Pavilion installation in Brooklyn that acts a meditative oasis.
