RE/SISTERS – Barbican Art Gallery

A major group exhibition that explores the relationship between gender and ecology, and highlights the systemic links between the oppression of women and the degradation of the planet. Featuring around 50 international women and gender non-conforming artists, RE/SISTERS features work from emerging and established artists across photography and film. Works in the exhibition explore how women’s understanding of our environment has often resisted the logic of capitalist economies which place the exploitation of the planet at its centre. The exhibition design consists of organic forms and softened edges, alluding to a politics of care.
