Our Time on Earth

A figure stands in front of a talk screen projecting the image of the base of a large tree.

Our Time on Earth is a major exhibition celebrating the power of global creativity to transform the conversation around the climate emergency. 

Highlighting the need for collaboration across disciplines to tackle the climate emergency, Our Time on Earth explores positive possibilities for existing on Earth, while also looking at the role technology plays in deepening our understanding and connection to the natural world.

With 18 immersive installations and interactive digital works, the exhibition presents a global view across three interconnected sections: Belong, Imagine and Engage.

Featuring works by leading practitioners including the design studio Superflux, architects BuildX, artist Victoria Vesna, film director Liam Young, indigenous-led collectives Selvagem and Choose Earth;  alongside innovative commissions created by newly formed collaborations such as The Sanctuary of the Unseen Forest by digital art collective Marshmallow Laser Feast with bio-leadership project co-founder Andres Roberts, Queer Ecology by Colombian biologist Brigitte Baptiste and the Institute of Digital Fashion (IoDF), and The World Beneath Our Feet by author, journalist, and environmental activist George Monbiot with creative innovation studio Holition. Our Time on Earth
encourages visitors to take an active role in understanding the climate emergency and leave feeling empowered to make positive change.

The exhibition was produced and curated by the Barbican with Guest Curators FranklinTill, and co-produced by Musée de la civilisation, Québec City, Canada.
