Down to Earth. Danish painting 1780-1920 and landscapes of the "anthropocene”

Down to Earth is a visionary exhibition, which brings art and the natural sciences together to discuss one of the most urgent questions of our times. In the exhibition, the question of what we are doing to our planet is asked through a historical reflection of how we got to this precarious moment. The landscape, nature, and our surroundings have changed dramatically in the last 200 years. We live in the Anthropocene Epoch, in which humanity’s impact on nature has run so deep as to have left its own geological traces. Down to Earth shows us how, as early as the nineteenth century, landscape painting and the natural sciences were already working together to document and interpret the landscape’s profound transformation. This exhibition is a collaboration between Faaborg Museum, the Ribe Art Museum and The Hirschsprung Collection, Copenhagen. The exhibition is curated by Gry Hedin (Faaborg Museum), Gertrud Oelsner (The Hirschsprung Collection), and Thor J. Mednick (University of Toledo)..
Sat 6 October 2018 to Sun 20 January 2019, 11 am.
