Exhibition open July 1 – November 12, 2023
The National Museum of Wildlife Art is delighted to partner with Creature Conserve to present Re-Imagining Conservation: From Many Viewpoints. This exhibition, which includes works from 31 artists from nine different countries, takes a broad look at the future of conservation. The artworks included here imagine a future where conservation action is multidisciplinary, inclusive, and connected. It asks viewers to consider: What if we imagine conservation from all perspectives? What new futures might we find when we change our point of view?
This is the second exhibition in this series and asks artists: What if conservation took on new forms? Artists are invited to dream big about the future of conservation for this exhibition and consider bold approaches to cross-disciplinary work. It encourages visitors to consider new ways to find a healthy balance in our human-animal relationships, including how we live together in shared environments. For example, what if we fully embedded wildlife rehabilitation within urban landscapes? What if political borders respected natural migratory pathways for all animals, human and non-human? What if we gave more to the land than we took from it?
