(human) in nature

(human) in nature

16 December 2023 - 26 May 2024

Through a selection of works by Australian and international artists from the SAM Collection, (human) in nature examines the tension between our fascination with nature’s inherent beauty and the contradictory human actions that negatively impact global ecosystems.

From diverse perspectives, the artists use their craft to explore concerns of individual and collective responsibility that are entangled in our enchantment with the environment.
