MARIA FRIBERG: SILENT REVOLUTION
January / March 2023 online
PREVIEW HERE https://www.connersmith.us.com/exhibitions/maria-friberg
CONNERSMITH is pleased to present “Silent Revolution”, an online exhibition of photographs by Maria Friberg. As visual artist, feminist, and environmental activist, Friberg has imbued her art with pioneering environmentalist subjects for two decades. In this selection of signature works the artist critiques power structures and industrial practices. With captivating imagery, she denounces the destruction of ancient ecosystems through widespread deforestation, the overconsumption of material goods, and inequities in modern society.
“We just entered a new epoch, if you think about the Stone Age, the Iron Age, etc. Now it’s the Human Age. We need more wild animals and more nature, but humans affect the planet the most; we change the environment and the planet’s future. Whether we are talking about environmentalism or about feminism, it’s always about justice for all. It’s both scary and hopeful that we can really do something positive. I believe in art as a bridge to each other – a universal language whereby we can understand our differences and create change.”
– Maria Friberg
