Throughout history and across the world, the word ‘land’ has ranged in its connotations to connect with political and economic concepts, as well as emotional and romantic ones.

Some of these connections include ethnic or national identity, environmentalism, wealth and ownership, revolution and redistribution, food politics, ideas of home and community, inclusion and exclusion, and of course nature and physical earth itself.

From landscape paintings to installations of soil and grass, WMG solicits work by artists of all genders working in all media for this exhibition.
