From rural raves in Castlemorton to anti-nuclear protests at Greenham Common, this exhibition presents a radical view of the British landscape in art.
Expanding on landscape art as being limited to paintings of lush green hills, enjoy art that reflects the diversity of the British Landscape and the communities that inhabit it.
Radical Landscapes features two new commissions by Davinia-Ann Robinson and Delaine Le Bas. In Rinkeni Pani (Beautiful Water), Le Bas explores her English-Romany heritage to engage with themes of trespass and climate change. Davinia-Ann Robinson’s installation Some Intimacy combines salvaged clay and sound to powerful effect.
Experience Ruth Ewan’s Back to the Fields, which brings live plants and trees into the heart of the exhibition. Immerse yourself in Gustav Metzger’s psychedelic installation Liquid Crystal Environmentwhich harnesses the natural energies of heat and light.
See over 150 paintings, sculptures, photographs, films by artists including Jeremy Deller, Ingrid Pollard, Tanoa Sasraku, Derek Jarman, Hurvin Anderson, Claude Cahun, Alan Lodge and many more.
