Total Landscaping

10 April 2021 - 4 July 2021
10:00 - 20:00

Curated by Murtaza Vali, Total Landscaping investigates the ways in which plant life is commonly understood, encountered, represented and consumed in the Gulf, and within similar emergent urban formations across the global south. It focuses in on instances when the unruly vitality of flora is arrested in the service of capitalism and politics, a process that abstracts and reduces it to a color, a verb and an image.
