Our Time On Earth – 18th Annual PEM Inspirational Exhibition

Inspired by PEM – Our Time on Earth: Our 18th annual PEM Inspirational Exhibition invites artists to draw inspiration from the PEM exhibition “Our Time on Earth, on display at the Peabody Essex Museum through June 9, 2024. From the PEM, “Part of PEMs Climate + Environment Initiativethis traveling exhibition from the Barbican Center in London celebrates the power of global creativity to transform the conversation around the climate crisis.”

  • Reception: Friday April 12, 2024, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
  • Exhibition dates: April 13 – May 18, 2024

We challenged our artists to really think about the materials used in the pieces created for this exhibition. Think about the environmental and climate impacts we have when we create our art, and the ways we can start the conversation around climate change and collapse.

“This exhibition invites us to imagine ways that art, design and science together can help us imagine a positive future for our planet,” said Jane Winchell, Sarah Fraser Robbins director of PEM’s Dotty Brown Art & Nature Center .

Local artists have submitted artworks for this exhibition that explore the themes of our harmonious coexistence with science, nature, sustainability and the world around us.

Open Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon to 6 p.m
