To the End of Land
'To the End of Land' is an extensive group exhibition curated by Or Tshuva and Drorit Gur Arie in 2018 at the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi. The exhibition featured a wide range of references to human-nature relations, as they appear in the work of artists operating in Israel today. The chosen title, 'To the End of Land', strives to draw attention to some of the cultural, social, and political aspects embodied in their artistic explorations. On the one hand, it refers to land in the geopolitical context of borders, territories and access to natural resources. On the other hand, it points at the broad environmental-ecological dimension. It refers to the depletion of natural resources in the Anthropocene era, typified by the acceleration of geological and environmental processes due to human activity, and to the resulting fear of "the end of land" as a meta-cultural concern which goes beyond national boundaries.
