Exhibition
Artists in the Field
6-10 November 2019 – ‘Artists in the Field’ exhibition
Curated by the Rabbit Island Foundation and Temporal School of Experimental Geography
Supported by RGS-IBG

Explore 2019, Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), London, UK

From watersheds to fault lines, the Earth’s core to the cosmos, Artists in the Field offers a glimpse into practices of intricate fieldwork across a variety of environments, each with a critical eye and rigorous aesthetic approach. Departing from visual displays that may be seen as merely complementary to data-driven explorations and scientific studies, the artworks hint at a truly interdisciplinary future—where the arts and geography stand alongside one another as collaborative methods of understanding our environment, both near to home and further afield.

The exhibition brings together a diverse collection of work from 14 international artists working across a number of disciplines. Solo explorations with poetic intent converse with group projects encompassing multiple fields of research. Individually and together they can shift between the concrete and ephemeral, offering new perspectives of the places we celebrate and the challenges encountered in our changing world.

Artists
Ruben Brulat, Luce Choules, Edwina fitzPatrick, Roseann Hanson, Laura Harrington, Emma Harry, Duy Hoáng, Alexandra Hughes, Alice Pedroletti, Andrew Ranville, Himali Singh Soin, somewhere-nowhere and Rhona Taylor.
