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.

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. 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.
