Archive Contemporary x The Earth Issue
Curated by Maela Ohana

Eleven contemporary artists address their personal relationship to the natural world, with an emphasis on the scope and function of art in the anthropocene. Each work presents an example of symbiosis between self and nature, artistically explored through painting, installation and photographic mediums.
