Online Exhibition: 19 June - 31 August 2021

Forces of Nature

Glyndebourne's first all women group show.

This exhibition has now ended.

Forces of Nature is a group exhibition exploring our increasingly complex relationship with the natural world. From imagined landscapes to topographical views, highly personal perspectives and almost scientific observations, this group exhibition considers nature’s strength, its beauty and fragility, fears about its degradation and human impact on the environment. The exhibition challenges us to reframe nature’s life-giving forces and in this anthropocene age, our power and responsibility to protect nature for the future.

Featuring new work by 18 artists from across the UK, Forces of Nature is Glyndebourne’s first all-women exhibition. The exhibiting artists are Lesley Birch, Kate Boucher, Katie Brookes, Morag Caister, Lara Cobden, Linda Felcey, Michele Fletcher, Christabel Forbes, Jelly Green, Melanie Goemans, Tyga Helme, Linda Jamieson, Kathryn Johnson, Rosie Lascelles, Kathryn Maple, Esther Donaldson Nyandwi, Jayne Sandys-Renton and Victoria Sebag.

This exhibition has been curated by Nerissa Taysom. To download a PDF of artist biographies, please click here.
