Inspired by artist Otobong Nkanga’s suggestion that ‘caring is a form of resistance,’ the Dear Earth exhibition at the Hayward Gallery brings together 15 artists from around the world.
Exploring the interdependence of ecologies and ecosystems, as well as our emotional connection with nature, the show includes giant photographs made on grass to a large-scale media screen made with recycled bottles.
The exhibition features engaging and impactful works in a diverse range of media, including public artworks outside the gallery space.
Artists on show include Ackroyd & Harvey, Andrea Bowers, Imani Jacqueline Brown, Agnes Denes, John Gerrard, Cristina Iglesias, Aluaiy Kaumakan, Jenny Kendler, Richard Mosse, Otobong Nkanga, Cornelia Parker, Himali Singh Soin, Hito Steyerl, Daiara Tukano and Grounded Ecotherapy.
