The climate crisis is no longer a distant threat; it is a stark reality that demands our immediate attention. Our planet is undergoing unprecedented changes that include rising global temperatures and sea levels, extreme weather events, and the loss of biodiversity. In a time when the enormity of this crisis can be overwhelming, art provides a means to process and channel our emotions, engendering a sense of ownership and empowerment. The exhibition Mother Earth considers these pressing issues through the vision of women artists. Ranging from drawings, paintings, textiles, works on paper, photographs to sculptures, installations, and video, the featured works harness the power of art to evoke emotions, spark conversations, and inspire meaningful action. By confronting this uncomfortable truth through artistic expression, together we can foster a deeper connection to the environment, a greater sense of urgency to protect our natural world, and a more holistic vision for a sustainable future.
