RE/SISTERS Exhibition: A lens on Gender and Ecology
Barbican Museum and Art Gallery, London
Thu 5 October to Sun 4th Jan 2024
We are delighted to announce a major group exhibition exploring the relationship between gender and ecology at Barbican Museum and Art Gallery, London.
Featuring around 50 international women and gender non-conforming artists, RE/SISTERS is a new exhibition featuring work from emerging and established artists across the fields of photography and film, the exhibition highlights the systemic links between the oppression of women and the degradation of the planet.
Works in the exhibition explore how women’s understanding of our environment has often resisted the logic of capitalist economies which places the exploitation of the planet at its centre. They are presented alongside works of an activist nature that show how women are regularly at the forefront of advocating and caring for the planet.
Reflecting on a range of themes, from extractive industries to the politics of care, RE/SISTERS explores environmental and gender justice as indivisible parts of a global struggle. It seeks to address existing power structures that threaten our increasingly precarious ecosystem.
Metro Imaging has provided a range of services including Scanning, B&W, Ctype and Giclee printing. The gallery’s curatorial team implemented sustainable and low environmental impact policies by working as closely as possible with local partners and we are very proud to have played our part with this incredible exhibition.
