“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children”
This exhibition invites artists to respond to the environmental changes happening throughout the Okanagan Valley. The past year in the Okanagan brought major flooding throughout the spring resulting in personal property damage and had us thinking about climate change and our relationship to nature. That conversation took on more urgency in the summer months with the lack of rain, forest fires, lost homes and day after day of smoke-filled skies.
This exhibition explores current ecological crises and presents a platform for a discussion on the Anthropocene—the current ecological epoch that represents humanity’s dominant influence on the planet.
Guest curator Hanss Lujan is a Peruvian artist, writer and emerging curator living in the Okanagan. He has worked on a variety of exhibitions and projects for galleries in Kelowna including the Kelowna Art Gallery and the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art. His project research themes include place and cultural identity, globalization, and socially engaged practices.
The Lake Country Art Gallery looks to collaborate with those who are interested in pursuing a career as a professional curator and each year offer an opportunity to work with the gallery membership to produce an exhibition on a given theme proposed by the guest curator.
