About this Exhibition

This exhibition has been curated by Rosanna Greaves and Marina Velez.

The exhibition is an extension of the book ROAR by artists Rosanna Greaves and Marina Velez. Both the exhibition and book were conceived as part of broad aesthetic and critical conversations about sustainability. The title refers to both a primordial expression and a voice that deserves to be heard.

The curation of this exhibition intends to expand on conversations between the collaborators and to explore urgent, social and environmental issues. The collaborators explore interconnected themes such as borders, survival, animals, gender, geopolitics, decolonisation, domination, exploitation and environmental justice.

The works engage with the complexity of sustainability and how art can bring about new stories that help us imagine ways of developing responsibility towards each other, other species and the environment.

Artist in the exhibition are: Maria Rebecca Ballestra with Camilla Boemio, Kai Lossgott, Angelika Boeck and Uli Aigner, Michael Hrebeniak, Lisa Wilkens, Marina Velez, Rosanna Greaves, Sally Stenton, Sarah Strachan, and Stefano Cagol.

This exhibition is part of the Cambridge Festival 2021. Join the ROAR live Q&A event on 3 April 2021.
