On Earth features five artists who use moving images to explore the complex relationships between humans and the natural environment. The film and video works in this exhibition present land as a central figure, introducing themes of temporality, ritual, memory, territory, loss, and birth. Offering critical readings on the often destructive relationship between humankind and the earth, the artists also advance visions for alternative futures. The artworks directly engage with challenging realities, while acknowledging the joy, creativity, and growth that a relationship with land can provide.

Represented are the artists Ali Cherri (born 1976, Beirut, Lebanon); Jeffrey Gibson (born 1972, Colorado Springs, CO); Sky Hopinka (born 1984, Ferndale, WA); Ana Mendieta (born 1948, Havana, Cuba, died 1985); and Rivane Neuenschwander (born 1967, Belo Horizonte, Brazil), in collaboration with Cao Guimarães (born 1965, Belo Horizonte, Brazil).
