About

Join Tate Liverpool for Radical Landscapes, a major exhibition exploring our connections to the rural landscapes of Britain.

Featuring works such as Ruth Ewan's Back to the Fields 2015, an installation of live plants, and Jeremy Deller's green neon Cerne Abbas sculpture, this show expands on the traditional, picturesque portrayals of the landscape, presenting art that reflects the diversity of Britain's landscape and communities.

Discover playful and political artworks which reveal untold histories from the last century and investigate themes such as trespass, land use and the climate emergency. Encounter over 150 works including key pieces such as Tacita Dean's Majesty 2006, Oceans Apart 1989 by Ingrid Pollard and Anwar Jalal Shemza's Apple Tree 1962.

Radical Landscapes presents rural spaces as sites of artistic inspiration and action, and a heartland for ideas of freedom, mysticism and rebellion. It explores how artists have reclaimed the landscape as a space to make art for everyone, as well as unearth how the countryside has been shaped by our values and use of the land. The show will also consider the human impact on the landscape and ecosystems, by featuring works that reflect on the climate and its impact on the landscape including Gustav Metzger's dazzling Liquid Crystal Environment 1965/2005 and Yuri Pattison's sun[set] provisioning 2019.

The exhibition comes at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic has made us all re-evaluate our relationship with the landscape, the accessibility of green space and the profound human need to connect and commune with land and nature.
