ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
curated by Klaus Thymann and Leanne Wickham
The exhibition is a narrative of the importance of glaciers told in a scientific, illustrative and poetic way and each artist has a unique take on the subject. It shows scale from the planetary level to microscopic biological impact, and considers humanitarian suffering and more. Together, the artistic interpretations in MELTDOWN give visitors unique insights into the world’s cryosphere, its fragile ecosystem and our changing global climate.
Proudly supported by the Embassy of the United States, Hutt Mana Trust, Upper Hutt City Council Sustainability Fund and the Lion Foundation.

Born in Germany, Renate Aller lives and works in New York. “The Space Between Memory and Expectation” and “side walk 6′ apart in NYC” are her most recent books, both published by Kehrer Verlag, Germany. “Mountain Interval” and the artist’s previous projects “Ocean and Desert”, “dicotyledon” (published by Radius Books of Santa Fe) and the long term project “Oceanscapes – One View – Ten Years” (co published by Kehrer Verlag and Radius Books) support the artist’s investigation into the relationship between Romanticism, memory and landscape – in the context of our current socio-political awareness.
Her works are in the collections of corporate institutions, private collectors and museums, including Lannan Foundation, Santa Fe, N.M., National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., Yale University Art Gallery, CT, George Eastman House, Rochester, NY, New Britain Museum of American Art, CT, Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburg, Germany, Chazen Museum of Art, Madison, WI, Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill, NY, , Musée des Beaux-Arts, Le Locle, Switzerland and New-York Historical Society Museum, New York, NY Where a solo exhibition with “side walk 6′ apart in NYC” will be held in March – July 2022.
