The botanical revolution

In the exhibition The botanical revolution -
On the necessity of art and gardening
contemporary artists reflect on society through the garden. Throughout the centuries, artists, writers, poets and thinkers have described, represented and shaped the garden differently each time. In contemporary art, too, the garden is a rich source of inspiration. It is not romantic longing that is central, but the call for a new awareness of our relationship with the earth. What current reflections do artists offer on paradise, the allotment, climate change?
Through January 9, 2022 at the Centraal Museum.
Parallel to this exhibition in the Centraal Museum, Kunstruimte NEST in The Hague is showing the exhibition Is it possible to be a revolutionary and like flowers?(photos Gert Jan van Rooij)
