Responding to ongoing ecological crises, Resistance After Nature, a new exhibition at Haverford College’s Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery, gathers together contemporary and historic works of insurgent environmental art. Curated by artists and writers Kendra Sullivan and Dylan Gauthier, this exhibit collects the works of over a dozen artists and artist collectives who are imagining alternative approaches to such entangled ecological, political, and economic issues as Indigenous sovereignty and water rights, the fossil fuel economy, ocean acidification, global transport, mineral extraction, and deforestation.

Participating artists include: Maria Thereza Alves, Ursula Biemann, Dennis Redmoon Darkeem, Futurefarmers, Helen and Newton Harrison, Marianne Heier, Haley Hughes, Civic Laboratory for Environmental Action Research (CLEAR), Tanya Lukin Linklater, Cannupa Hanska Luger, Anne Lydiat and Chris Wainwright, Mary Mattingly, MORE&MORE (Surya Mattu, Sarah Rothberg, Marina Zurkow), Postcommodity, Brie Ruais, and WINTER COUNT.

 Resistance After Nature is made possible is made possible with support from the John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities. The exhibition is organized in conjunction with the Hurford Center’s 2016-17 Faculty Seminar “Environmental Design, Sustainability, and Artistic Intervention,” led by Associate Professor of Fine Arts Markus Baenziger and Assistant Professor of Anthropology Joshua Milton Moses.
