Playlist: Among the Trees

Friday, March 20, 2020 - 12:54

Among the Trees – at Hayward Gallery until 17 May 2020 – is a group exhibition which explores our relationship with trees and forests. Featuring the work of 38 artists that is by turns poetic, adventurous and thought-provoking, the exhibition invites us to see the natural world with new eyes.

To celebrate this exhibition we’ve put together a musical accompaniment, by way of this specially curated Spotify playlist. Settle in and enjoy 54 tracks that reference, or are inspired by, interactions with trees, forests or woodland. With musical artists spanning from Radiohead to Rush and Sufjan Stevens to Snapped Ankles, there’s something for everyone.



Hayward Gallery is currently closed, but you can purchase the catalogue for Among the Trees to be delivered.

As a charity, we rely on ticket sales for a huge chunk of our income. But now they’ve stopped. And it's a huge worry to us, and the people we work with. In difficult times, we all need the escape of art and culture; it can inspire and unite us. So please – if you can afford to – consider a donation to the Southbank Centre today, to help us be there for you in the future.
