One of Ellie Harrison’s four 'climate change' signs is displayed outside the Gallery of Modern Art throughout 2015, as part of the artist’s life-long Early Warning Signs project, provoking discussion about climate change, whilst helping her 'reduce, reuse, recycle her art'!


Early Warning Signs is an ongoing project by British artist Ellie Harrison.

Initiated at Artsadmin's Two Degrees festival in 2011, the project aims to allow the four rotating 'climate change' signs she produced for the festival to continue to promote their cause long into the future. Each autumn, four new host venues are invited to 'adopt a sign', agreeing to keep it on public display for the following year.

In 2015 the four host venues are: NN contemporary Art in Northampton, Spike Island in Bristol, The Tetley in Leeds and the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow. Applications are now being sought for four host venues to adopt signs in 2016. For all the details, please visit:
