Among the Trees: A virtual tour
Ralph Rugoff leads a virtual tour of Among the Trees, a group exhibition that looks at how artists over the past 50 years have explored our relationship with trees and forests.
Join the Hayward Gallery Director as he takes a look at two pieces in particular – Eva Jospin’s Forêt Palatine (2019–20), and Tree of 12 Metres (1980-82), by Giuseppe Penone – and considers the ways in which human culture and ‘tree culture’ are deeply entwined.
'One of the great joys of walking in a forest, is you give up any attempt to analyse it... you just enjoy the act of looking.'
Among the Trees is at Hayward Gallery until 31 October.
The exhibition is open on Wednesday – Saturday, 11am – 7pm and Sunday, 10am – 6pm; and closed on Monday and Tuesday. You must book online before visiting.
Enjoy your visit safely
London has now been placed in Tier 2 of the government’s new lockdown restrictions. This means that when indoors you cannot mix with people who are from different households, or outside your support bubble.
You can still come to the Hayward Gallery; our environment is still safe and Covid-secure, and we’ve plenty of hand sanitiser available to keep your hands clean. However, you must only move through the gallery with people from your own household or support bubble. This is in addition to maintaining social distancing, and wearing a face covering at all times, when in the gallery.
We look forward to seeing you.
