TEMPLE CHILDREN presents ‘KINDRED SPIRITS: Exploring Interrelationships Between People, Places and Planet Earth,’ composed of this immersive and sensory group exhibition, the result of an experimental artist residency and public art project. // Video by Emad Rashidi & special thanks to Jesse Keone Potter for the words of wisdom.
‘Kindred Spirits’ addresses our collective global consciousness and commitment to permaculture as a critical tool in determining the future of our planet. This experiential collection of mixed-media installations, murals and film embodies our shared empathy for one another and the will to act collectively to better serve the environments we are fundamentally reliant on. The ‘Kindred Spirits’ exhibition showcases artists of varying backgrounds and mediums to explore the points where art and environmentalism intersect, celebrating the diversity of ideas, cultures and people, and honoring our collective home, Planet Earth.
Temple Children is an experimental art collective and artist residency that unites a diverse global community of creatives to generate collaboration for positive change. This group challenges us to look inward and recognize our individual values, consumption and the interconnectedness between all living things.
