Art not oil

Without a hint of irony, The Guardian has chosen Shell as lead sponsor of its June Climate Summit. The news was greeted with dismay as London Rising Tide opened submissions for its 2007 Art Not Oil exhibition. The annual exhibition aims to challenge oil industry sponsorship and focus critical attention on BP’s National Portrait Award and Shell’s Wildlife Photographer Of The Year Award. Art Not Oil’s online gallery currently features over 200 works exploring the destructive power of big oil and the role art can play in resistance.
