The exhibition Everybody Talks About the Weather, which opens to the public from 26 May to 26 November at the Fondazione Prada in Venice, features as one of the research books Green Obsession, Trees Towards Cities, Humans Towards Forests (ed. Actar, 2022) by Stefano Boeri Architetti.

Everybody Talks About the Weather, curated by Dieter Roelstraete is a research exhibition that explores the meanings of weather in visual art, taking weather conditions as a premise for addressing the issue of the current climate emergency. The exhibition takes place on two levels of Ca’ Corner della Regina, interweaving the two dimensions of research, the artistic and the scientific. On the ground floor, a large ledwall broadcasts a loop of weather forecasts extracted from traditional and online media from around the world. In the rooms on the first floor, historical works of art share the same exhibition space with recent works and new commissions, establishing an ideal continuity between past, present and future or, on the contrary, triggering a short circuit between opposing visions and discordant notions. The exhibition reveals the artists’ constant focus on ‘talking about time’, from allegorical paintings and en plein air paintings to recent multimedia installations and transnational activism.

In this context, a series of books that consider these aspects, in different artistic fields, are presented, including Green Obsession, Trees Towards Cities, Humans Towards Forests, a volume that develops alternating dialogues and scholarly essays summarising the work and research of Stefano Boeri Architetti studio in recent years.
Contributions include: Enrico Alleva, Emanuele Coccia, Fredi Devas, Laura Gatti, Jane Goodall, Paul Hawken, Cecil Konijnendijk, Davi Kopenawa Yanomami, Pier Mannuccio Mannucci, David Miller, Harini Nagendra, Thomas B. Randrup, Giuseppe Sala, Mitchell Silver, Giorgio Vacchiano, Li Xiangning.
