Edited by Alona Pardo
Reflecting on a range of themes, from extractive industriesto the politics of care, this timely exhibition catalog looks atenvironmental and gender justice as indivisible parts of a globalstruggle.
A culturally diverse selection of works by Laura Aguilar,melanie bonajo, Xaviera Simmons, Minerva Cuevas, BarbaraKruger, Nadia Huggins, Ana Mendieta, Sim Chi Yin, Pamela Singh,Francesca Woodman and others are presented alongside worksof an activist nature to demonstrate how women are regularlyat the forefront of advocating and caring for the planet. Amplifying these visions are illuminating essays by experts inthe field, including Professor Kathryn Yusoff, Professor AstridaNeimanis, Professor Catriona Sandilands and Professor ElizabethDeLoughrey, that consider a diverse range of pertinent topicssuch as hydrofeminism, the body as earth, queer ecologies,and environmental racism.
Together these texts and importantartworks reveal how the oppression of women, feminizedbodies and indigenous, Black and trans communities and thedegradation of the planet are inextricably linkedâ€”and theways in which understanding our environment can resist andovercome the logic of capitalist economies.
