EARTHEN | EXHIBITION LAUNCH + ARTIST TALK13 October 2023
Shan Turner-Caroll, Untitled, 2011.
Please join us on Friday 13 October for the launch of Earthen our second annual BETTER NATURE Art + Events program. At 5pm, the program kicks off with an artist talk by Robert Andrew, followed by a Welcome to Country by Aunty Lola Ryan and launch proceedings.
In response to our time of ecological crisis, BETTER NATURE Art + Events embraces the complex entanglement of human and non-human worlds. Each year, BETTER NATURE explores different ecological ideas from a more-than-human perspective, challenging our prevailing human-centric paradigm to create moments of collective clarity and hope.
In 2023, BETTER NATURE embraces the theme Earthen, turning our attention to the world beneath our feet. It presents an exhibition of ground-breaking artists from across Australia as the central node in a network of events, workshops, screenings and activations.
Through newly commissioned and site-specific works, the exhibiting artists engage earthly materials in processes that transform, transmute, impress and uncover, revealing intangible ideas, energies and cultural stories.
From contemporary dance, music and talks to hands-on experiences with wild edibles and ceramics, the Art + Events program brings together diverse ideas within a ‘compost’ of creative practices, offering inspiring ways to break down the perceived separation of humans and earth.
