This summer, the Hayward Gallery will present Dear Earth: Art and Hope in a
Time of Crisis, a timely exhibition exploring how international contemporary artists are helping to reframe our responses to the climate crisis.
Dear Earth aims to inspire a renewed sense of connection with the natural world, and invite audiences to consider the unique and evolving role art has to play in today’s climate debate and activism. The exhibition will feature works from over fifteen international artists and will be presented as part of the Southbank Centre’s wider summer season of work centering on the climate emergency. With a focus on empathy and activism, it will encompass performance, literature, poetry and spoken word, as well as classical and contemporary music across the site.
