Drawn predominantly from NOMA’s permanent collection, Ear to the Ground explores how nature can spur artistic innovation and spark new thinking about culture and community. Working with natural elements like soil, water, wind, and fire, these artists treat nature is not just a resource to be protected or exploited, but rather a generative force with its own sentient power.
