MCA is set for a fantastic summer of exhibitions. For someone that sees a lot of art, it was an uplifting experience. Particularly the environmental exhibition In the Balance. This exhibition does not preach, nor does it appear to state somehow that art is the solution to all the worlds problem. But it does let artists do what they do best – create conceptually beautiful, touching and exciting works that challenge and interest the viewer. You can’t ask for much more than that. Highlights include works that interact with the public such as Makeshift (picture by me of Karl – one half of makeshift), and blogs by artists through the exhibition Environmental Audit by Lucas Ihlein, Food Forest by the Artist as Family Weedbook and weedy connection by Diego Bonetto and Urban Wildlife Safari by Joni Taylor.
