    PURE WATER
    The Most Valuable Resource in the World

    3 October 2014 to 15 February 2015

    Water, a resource that is a precondition for life like no other, is increasingly coming under pressure for ecological as well as economic reasons. Water keeps us alive, water is in need of protection as a public good. Pure water is also an emotional resource and a prime ingredient for wellbeing and happiness.

    The 1960s saw the beginning of two developments that continue to make water a fascinating subject for art to this day. On one hand, socially relevant themes such as ecology moved to the fore in artistic projects and, on the other, the fluid, changeable, elusive aspects of water lend themselves to an enlarged sculptural practice. Artists use water in its different states of aggregation as a material. Water is synonymous with a high quality of life. It is indispensable for cleaning, bathing, swimming and central to religious and spiritual rites. The struggle against pollution and against exploiting water as simply another economic resource is essential.

    Artists accompany this struggle, comment on it and take part in it. This is an exhibition that features the economic, social, emotional and aesthetic aspects of an indispensable element.

    “All Summer in a Day” is a series by photographer Elizabeth Weinberg, loosely based on the Ray Bradbury short story of the same name. Imagine a future on a planet where the sun comes out for only two hours every seven years, and a dark and steady rain falls the rest of the time. For the first time since they were too young to remember, a group of school children experience the majesty of a sunny day for a brief period before it all goes dark again.

    See more photos from the series here.

    The best thing about photography is when a vision comes to life perfectly and it resonates with others.
