A Green and Pleasant Land, British Landscape and the Imagination: 1970s to Now
30 September 2017 – 21 January 2018

“A Green and Pleasant Land, British Landscape and the Imagination: 1970s to Now, a major survey of over 100 works by 50 artists who have shaped our understanding of the land we live on and its relationship to identity, place and time. The exhibition interprets the British landscape through the ideologies associated with both urban and rural landscapes, exposing the inherent tensions between landscape represented as a transcendental or spiritual place, and one rooted in social and political histories. Though mainly photography, A Green and Pleasant Land includes film, painting and sculpture, to explore how the diverse concerns that found expression in photography extended into other art forms.”
