Earth Gallery

EarthArt Fellowship Initiative

Earth Art, established in 2015, is an ongoing collaboration between artists based in the South West and the staff and academics from the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol. Find out more here

´The idea of developing the fellowship and the earth gallery at the University of Bristol was not just about public engagement but a way to explore a different angle for the scientists; maybe changing how they see what they are doing to generate a more balanced outlook, taking into account the social aspects not just the economical’     Rodney Harris, artist and member of the Earth Art arts council.

Supporting this initiative as an associate curator, I have produced gallery interpretation and publications of each projects as an opportunity to reflect, share and document the fellowship, public event and exhibition of the selected artist.
