flora is an ambitious contemporary arts project that brings together work by national and international artists to reveal flowers as powerful commentators in art.
From common weeds to exotic cultivars, flowers have been and are embedded in people’s lives across the globe, not least as inspiration to artists. This visually stunning exhibition both in and outside of the gallery presents new and existing work by eleven key artists; Emma Bennett, Michael Boffey, Caroline Dear, Anya Gallaccio, Ori Gersht, Owen Griffiths, Anne-Mie Melis, Jacques Nimki, Magali Nougarède, Yoshihiro Suda, Clare Twomey. These artists offer ways in which flowers make visible cultural, historical, geographic, social and scientific ideas.
OFFICIAL OPENING: Saturday 23 July, 6-8pm
