Emergence Magazine presents 


An Immersive Exhibition

Oxo Tower Wharf, London

1–10 December 2023 
11am–7pm Daily
Free Admission

This December, Emergence Magazine invites you to step into SHIFTING LANDSCAPES: a unique immersive, multisensory ode to our changing Earth, open for a limited 10-day run at Bargehouse, a multi-level industrial exhibition space in the heart of London’s South Bank.

Bearing witness to the Earth’s rapid transformations, viewers will be invited to see, touch, hear, and breathe—to feel into and participate in—the spaces of connection and kinship held here. Immersed in the music of birdsong, the migration of microbes, the sounds of silence, and the breath of a rainforest, might we remember ourselves as an extension of the changing Earth? What seeds of reciprocity, of abundant mutual care, might take root? 

This special one-time event presents interactive works that open our imaginations to our entanglement with the biosphere, from the smallest stirrings of life within our bodies to the massive imprints we have left on the Earth’s face. The exhibition features a dynamic group of international artists, including:

Adam Loften
Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee
Gheorghe Popa
Kalyanee Mam
Katie Holten
Kiliii Yüyan
Marshmallow Laser Feast
Studio Airport
Zied Ben Romdhane

A programme of free weekend talks and events will run alongside the exhibition, including conversations with the exhibition’s artists and Emergence contributors, and special film screenings.

Highlights include screenings of our new film The Nightingale’s Song and Q&As with film subject and Mercury Prize–winning folk singer Sam Lee, an audio presentation from Pulitzer Prize–nominated writer and biologist David G. Haskell on the changing sounds of planet Earth, and a presentation by acclaimed writer Melanie Challenger on the rights of nature. Nigerian-British poet and Booker Prize–winning novelist Ben Okri will also give a special reading of his poem “Earth Cries” and be in conversation with exhibition curator Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee.
