AboutCape Farewell pioneers a cultural response to climate change. Working internationally, it brings artists, scientists and communicators together to stimulate the production of art founded in scientific research. Choreographer Siobhan Davies, curator Greg Hilty and writer and literary manager at the royal court Theatre, Ruth Little discuss art and environmental issues.
The beauty and wonder of nature have provided inspiration for artists and architects for centuries. Since the 1960s, the increasingly evident degradation of the natural world and the effects of climate change have brought a new urgency to their responses. Radical Nature is the first exhibition to bring together key figures across different generations who have created utopian works and inspiring solutions for our ever-changing planet, drawing on ideas that have emerged out of Land Art, environmental activism, experimental architecture and utopianism. As part of Radical Nature, look out for a series of outdoor commissions, including a wooden tea house situated on the Barbican Waterside.
