Taking a Hard Look at Copenhagen's Biggest Art Exhibit

It seems that the most interesting thing happening at COP15 is the art and culture-making that's taking place outside the conference.

Good's Edward Morris, however, is unimpressed with one of the the event's biggest installations.After touring ReThink: Contemporary Art & Climate Change, an exhibition showcasing the work of 20 different artists, he comments that:

As an enterprise, as a totality, it fails to live up to the moment. This was an exhibit explicitly designed to contribute to the discourse around the Climate Conference and to "offer its interpretation of the colossal challenge the globe is facing."

This aspiration, he says, is left unfulfilled.
