> DESCRIPTION

The Gatherers: Greening Our Urban Spheres, is a ground-breaking exhibition of work from a culturally diverse group of artists combining art with cultural activism to incorporate nature and agriculture into urban habitats. YBCA sought out a distinctive group of artists from different backgrounds and cultures who touch upon various issues: from the construction of public urban social spaces; to environmental issues affecting urban residents; to the politics of localized food production and affordable nutrition for city dwellers. Through the lens of artistic practices, their works attempt to green our urban spheres, and involve a broad range of interlinking matters, from environmental issues to urban spatial justice. Artists and artist collectives in the exhibition include: Fallen Fruit, Amy Franceschini with Wilson Diaz, The National Bitter Melon Council, Oda Projesi, Marjetica Potrc, Public Matters, Ted Purves with Suzanne Cockrell, Rebar, roomservices and Åsa Sonjasdotter.
