Anna Atkins, Sara Barker, Jo Ganter, Ilana Halperin, Jade Montserrat with Webb Ellis, Jacki Parry, Carol Rhodes, Kate V Robertson and Amanda Thomson.
Drink in the Beauty celebrates the GoMA’s 25th anniversary year (2021). The exhibition draws on rare work by Anna Atkins from its renowned collection, alongside recent acquisitions – including work by Carol Rhodes and Sara Barker. The exhibition also features artist film works borrowed from Jo Ganter and Jade Montserrat.
The title comes from a quote ‘Drink in the beauty and wonder at the meaning of what you see’, by the eminent conservationist and author Rachel Louise Carson, and underpins the theme of the show – to inspire us to think about our connections to nature within the landscape around us and our responses to global injustices.
Drink in the Beauty explores representations of landscape, geology and human aspirations by artists who have documented and recorded the natural environment. More pressingly it opens up conversations with current debates on climate justice and legacies of the British Empire.
