Art for the Environment, curated by Camilla Palestra, will present work from six artists with practices that explore the nature of human impact on our environment. Following the celebrated international residency programme Art for the Environment (AER) – set up by acclaimed artist Professor Lucy Orta at the University of the Arts London (UAL) – the exhibition will, for the first time, present a selection of work created from past residencies, including film, sound and interactive installation, at the Nunnery Gallery, London.

Established in 2015, the AER programme invites artists and designers to explore concerns that define the twenty-first century – including biodiversity, environmental sustainability, social economy and human rights – and through artistic practice, envision a world of tomorrow. The exhibition sees six past AER residents combine to create a powerful presentation that probes our preconceptions and concerns around the environment, accompanied by an events programme that includes recycling workshops, panel discussions and a field-recording workshop in the Olympic Park.

Exhibiting artists, followed by their AER residency hosts are: Annabel Duggleby (Hauser & Wirth, Somerset 2017, UK); Magz Hall (Yorkshire Sculpture Park 2015, UK); Nana Maiolini (Joya: arte + ecología 2016, Spain); Noemi Niederhauser (Fondazione Berengo Murano, Venice 2015, Italy); Matt Parker (Joya: arte + ecología 2016, Spain); and Matteo Valerio (Fondazione Zegna 2016, Italy).

UAL and Bow Arts are also partnering to present a new nine-week AER residency at their Royal Albert Wharf (RAW) studios on the Thames, east London. (More info available on our website)

Art for the Environment is being developed with the support of University of the Arts London, Centre for Sustainable Fashion and Arts Council England.
