BLUE MINDS | TURNING TIDES
ARTISTS FOR BLUE MARINE FOUNDATION
24 June – 6th July 2021
68 Kinnerton Street, SW1X 8ER
127 Sloane Street, SW1X 9AS
Blue Minds, an artist-led collective comprising 26 world-leading contemporary creatives, frames the ocean as an endless source of inspiration and highlights why a healthy ocean matters. This fully immersive show offers soundscapes, photography, installations, paintings, wearable art brands, ceramics, films, sculptures, workshops, talks, interactive media and discussion rooms. Inspired by the tireless work of marine biologists and in association with the Blue Marine Foundation, Blue Minds exhibition makes explicit the mutuality artists share with scientists.
Both have a deep, constant observation of their subject; both are seeking to make us aware of problems like over-fishing and pollution, and both use creativity to find solutions and give us hope. Whilst science gives us the tools to understand the complexity behind the beauty of nature’s integrated systems – such as the ocean’s “hope spots” documented in the film Blue Mission – art enables us to express our feelings about the world and provides a point of connection for the viewer.
15% of proceeds from Blue Minds exhibition will go to the Blue Marine Foundation.
