Our Connection to Water Exhibition

25th February, 2024

Water is a vital resource, but, to many, it holds a sacred significance.

Beyond its uses for cleaning and drinking, water is central to many cultural and spiritual practices around the world.

Our Connection to Water brings together seven artists: Aya Mohamed, Artemis Evlogimenou, Dafe Oboro, Giya Makondo-Wills, JIUN Collective, Paul Malone and Seba Calfuqueo. Their work, influenced by their different backgrounds and experiences, explores our human connection to water.

Through photography, audio, film, illustration and installations, they share their perceptions of and relationships to water, and consider how it impacts their communities socially, culturally, environmentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Feel the water’s pull: visit the exhibition for free at the National Maritime Museum curated by The Collective Makers.
