Radical Landscapes, William Morris Gallery
October 21, 2023 - February 18, 2024
On exhibition at the William Morris Gallery until February 2024, Radical Landscapes explores the way that nature can inspire both artistic inspiration and political protest. This is seen through the lens of William Morris who was one of the earliest environmental thinkers in the UK.
A joint collaboration with the Tate Liverpool, the exhibition spans two centuries and includes 60 art works by JMW Turner, Derek Jarman, Claude Cahun, and Veronica Ryan amongst others.
The exhibition traces our relationship with nature right up to the current climate crisis. The exhibition also encourages viewers to engage with the surrounding environs in the London borough of Waltham Forest which was where Morris was born.
Radical Landscapes runs from 21 October, 2023 to 18 February, 2024.
