Works by Jo Spence, Rose English, Peter Kennard, and Li Yuan-chia are on view as part of Tate Liverpool's major landscape art exhibition revealing a never-before told social and cultural history of Britain through the themes of trespass, land use and the climate emergency.
Reflecting on shared customs, myths and rituals, the exhibition emphasises how artists have reclaimed the landscape as a common cultural space to make art. Interrogating concepts of nature and nation, the exhibition reverses the established view to reveal how the countryside has been shaped by our values and use of the land.
From rural raves in Castlemorton to anti-nuclear protests at Greenham Common, this exhibition presents a radical view of the British landscape in art.
The exhibition is on view from 5 May – 4 September 2022
