Our Time on Earth

Inspired by PEM - Our Time on Earth:  Our 18th Annual PEM Inspirational Exhibition invites artists to take inspiration from the PEM exhibition “Our Time on Earth, on view at the Peabody Essex Museum February 17 through June 9, 2024.  From the PEM, “Part of PEM’s Climate + Environment Initiative, this traveling exhibition from the Barbican Centre in London celebrates the power of global creativity to transform the conversation around the climate emergency.” https://www.pem.org/exhibitions/our-time-on-earth 


We challenge our artists to really consider the materials used in pieces created for this exhibit - think about the environmental and climate impacts we make when we create our arts, and ways that we can lift the conversation around climate change and collapse. 

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

All local artists are invited to submit artwork for this exhibition that explores the themes of our harmonious coexistence with science, nature, sustainability, and the world around us.
