Eyes as Big as Plates: Barbican, UK

5 May — 29 Aug 2022

Have you ever wondered how we can live on the planet in a way that doesn’t destroy the very ecosystems we need to thrive?

Our Time on Earth is a major new immersive and interactive exhibition exploring radical ideas from around the world that address how we live. Find out how, through technology, we can reveal the natural world like never before and approach the climate crisis in a way that inspires hope and positivity.

The eighteen works in the exhibition bring together different global perspectives spanning design, art, technology to show you a future in which people, animals, plants and the planet can flourish together.

Exhibition guest co-curators Caroline Till and Kate Franklin say: ‘The conversation about the climate crisis until this point has focused on depicting the scale of the problem – an approach that, while valuable, often evokes a sense of shame, helplessness and even paralysis. But we know that many brilliant artists, designers and technologists are creating ways to help combat the climate emergency. We wanted Our Time on Earth to carve out space to imagine a constructive way forward.’

The exhibition in the Curve takes place across three interconnected sections– Belong, Imagine and Engage. Our Time on Earth runs from 5 May – 29 August 2022. Find out more and book your tickets
