“Ecofeminism”—a theoretical and activist movement that connects gender oppression and the exploitation of natural resources—emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s from the environmental, anti-nuclear, queer, and feminist movements. Women artists became key proponents of this new movement, using art to address the systemic subjugation of women and nature, and the possibilities that feminism enables. Life on Earth: Art and Ecofeminism is a group exhibition inspired by four decades of ecofeminist art. Featuring approximately 35 international artists working in a variety of media, Life on Earth considers the origins and future of ecofeminist art, using it as both a lens and point of departure to explore themes of intersectional environmentalism, social ecologies, Indigenous rights, reproductive rights, and speculative futures, among other threads. By thoughtfully minimizing the show’s carbon footprint, Life on Earth’s organizers contribute to the ongoing expansion of the ecofeminist movement.
