An unconventional arboretum of artists’ trees, explored through photography, painting, drawing, video and installation
This volume brings together over 30 international artists whose works explore our relationships with trees and forests. Beginning with pioneering works from the late 1960s―a decade that saw the emergence of the modern environmental movement―Among the Trees surveys a remarkably expansive artistic terrain. It invites us to consider trees as symbols and living organisms that have shaped human civilization, and to celebrate their enduring resonance as a source of inspiration for some of the most compelling artists of our time.
