The health of humanity is intrinsically linked to the health of the environment,
but by our own actions we now threaten to destabilise the Earth’s key life support systems. Based on the principles of Planetary Health, critical mass examines the relationships between ecological, economic and social change, and explores new modes of living needed to restore and stabilize our planet and to ensure the health and wellbeing of future generations.

The exhibition encompasses works by Australia’s most significant 20th century and contemporary artists alongside collaborations by artist-activists and social change leaders, who are driving the conversation around new and more sustainable practices relating to our environment, food, energy, and resource sharing.

Featuring Russell Drysdale, Simryn Gill, Fiona Hall, Hans Heysen, Janet Laurence, Sidney Nolan, Patricia Piccinini, Louis Pratt, Daniel O’Shane and Glen Mackie (Kei Kalak) alongside Blue Mountains and regional NSW artists Locust Jones, Heidi Axelsen & Hugo Moline, Ona Janzen, Mandy Martin & Alexander Boynes, Rachel Peachey & Paul Mosig, Joan Ross, Dean Sewell and Gundungurra Aboriginal Heritage Association Inc.
