PROMISE THE EARTH

OPENING 5.30PM SATURDAY , 18th June – 7th August, 2022

Promise the Earth is the next in a five-part exhibition series launched two years ago at The Lock-Up. Curated by Meryl Ryan and Naomi Riddle, each exhibition takes one of the elements – water, earth, fire, air and æther (the post internet realm) – as its defining feature.
