    04 June - 19 June 2021
    EARTHLINGS: Davina-Ann Robinson, Jack Jubb, Jasmin Jahmeelah, Nooka Shepherd and Oscar Crabb Presenting the inaugural 2021 edition of EARTHLINGS, a new artist collective/movement made up of artworld ambassadors for a planet in peril. EARTHLINGS are a diverse community working across all media with a strategic focus on the environment as a whole. In this exhibition, EARTHLINGS take a critical look at the state of the planet, the artworld carbon footprint and how we can evolve to become more sustainable and socially responsible. This focus also takes into account biological systems, circularity and regeneration. The exhibition will examine real-world dystopian human impact and optimistic solutions for the future. 10% of profits from art sales will be donated to Cool Earth , a UK charity that works alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and its impact on climate change.
