Humber Museums Partnership - Is this Planet Earth?

Ferens Art Gallery

Event Starts:

4th May 2019

Event Ends:

28th July 2019

Visitors will encounter wondrous creatures and stunning landscapes filled with colours and sensations that are heightened and strange. Beautiful to behold and often sci-fi in feel, the exhibition will have darker undercurrents relating to our destruction of nature. The varied artistic work pays homage to visionary sci-fi writers and filmmakers who conjured apocalyptic landscapes and creatures such as; J.G Ballard, John Wyndham and Douglas Trumbull, to name just a few.

There are sculptures by Salvatore Arancio, Halina Dominska and Alfie Strong, paintings by Dan Hays and Katherine Reekie, a sound installation by Jason Singh, a live performance by Patrick Coyle and videos by Helen Sear and Seán Vicary.
