Art for Change, a leading platform that connects art collectors with in-demand contemporary artists and their work, and Phillips, the preeminent destination for 20th and 21st-century works of art, are pleased to announce Fully Bloomed. An exhibition of original artworks curated by Art for Change, the works will be on view and available via private sale.

Best known for their museum-quality limited edition prints, this exhibition marks the debut of a curated presentation of original artworks for Art for Change. With environmental conservation a central tenet of Art for Change’s mission, the artists invited for this exhibition confront and contribute to the move toward sustainability by exploring nature and the environment through content, methods, inspiration, or process. In conjunction with the exhibition, Art for Change and Phillips will plant 1,000 trees to help counter the CO2 emissions produced by the art industry. In addition to the original works on offer, Art for Change will exhibit a selection of limited edition prints by artists Danielle Orchard, Joel Mesler, Hyegyeong “G” Choi, Laura Berger, Soumya Netrabile, Amy Lincoln, Marcus Brutus, Jules de Balincourt, Danielle de Jesus, Maria Calandra, Jon Key, and Zoe McGuire.

This exhibition underscores our dedication to supporting artists and the environment, using art as a tool to move important conversations forward. A large part of Art for Change’s mission is finding ways to raise awareness for climate change and reduce its impact. We are incredibly proud to showcase the work of these talented artists, many of whom Art for Change has worked with in the past. Whether through content, methods, inspiration or process, the artists we have selected for Fully Bloomed confront and contribute to the move toward sustainability by exploring nature, the animal kingdom, humanity and the environment. We are proud to commit, in partnership with Phillips, to planting 1,000 trees to help counter CO2 emissions resulting from sales of artwork from this show.

Rebekah Bowling, Phillips’ Senior Specialist, Head of 21st Century Art, said:

We are honored to work with Art for Change to bring these incredible artworks to our community in LA, while also furthering the organization’s critical environmental mission. A momentous exhibition that features both original artworks alongside limited edition prints, Fully Bloomed represents an important moment in the contemporary art world and we are delighted to help amplify this cause.

Fully Bloomed represents Art for Change’s first original show of this magnitude, consisting primarily of Art for Change artists with whom the platform has spent years fostering relationships. Each original work by Allison Zuckerman, Kour Pour, Amir H. Fallah, Madeleine Bialke, Tessa Perutz, Hiba Schahbaz, Maggie Ogden, Pedro Pedro, Darryl Westly, Caris Reid, Becky Kolsrud, and Vanessa Prager transverses nature and the environment in a way that – in some cases – has not yet been explored by the artist.

Allison Zuckerman, whose work typically remixes art history and contemporary culture with an emphasis on female empowerment, will be exhibiting her very first landscape painting in honor of the theme; Madeleine Bialke is showcasing two paintings that represent the climate crisis and how it colors both the natural world we live alongside, as well as our internal landscapes; Kour Pour, whose work often deals directly and indirectly with the natural world, is showcasing a painting based on the tradition of Korean Minhwa painting that features a tiger to serve as a symbol of the endangered animals that exist in landscapes marred by deforestation; and Caris Reid will be displaying three paintings that serve as a reminder of the ecosystem that we as humans share with our animals and nature, and the responsibilities we have to protect and honor the earth.
