July 21, 2023 – October 29, 2023
In the face of our global climate crisis and tensions around the exploitation or pollution of our planet’s precious resources, the artists in the third chapter of Between Life and Land are compelled to respond to pressing environmental issues. Thirteen artists and artist collectives reflect on our rapidly shifting relationships to bodies of land and water, creating work that often sits at the intersection of art, activism, biology, ecology, and history. Advocating for climate justice and environmental protection or restoration, their work reminds us of our enduring relationships with the natural world and collective responsibility for change.
Artists include Ackroyd & Harvey, Lani Asuncion, Tiana Birrell, Lily Brooks, Dear Climate, Desert ArtLAB, John Grade, Beth Krensky, Meditation Ocean Constellation, Alan Michelson, Postcommodity, Gabriela Salazar, and Wendy Wischer.
Between Life and Land is a three-part exhibition series examining our relationship to land through the lens of more than 30 artists. Each exhibition in the series explores a singular theme to bring a deeper understanding of how this relationship has formed, evolved, and today continues to change.
