Eden Project Members and their guests are invited to attend an exclusive out-of-hours tour of our latest exhibition.
Radical Botany explores the artist’s role in the collecting and recording of flora, while uncovering stories about biodiversity, trade and extinction.
Join us for a special Members' event as we take time out to appreciate this stunning exhibition. From the scent of an extinct flower to the beauty of everyday vegetables, insightful pieces reveal botany in a new light. A selection of contemporary artworks, alongside exquisite botanical paintings, invites us to reflect on the seemingly ubiquitous but visually arresting world of plants, our relationship with them, and their effect on the wider human experience.
Following a short introduction, we'll be given a small group guided tour that will bring to life the individual works. Between them, they encompass a variety of mediums and include a showcase of the meticulous work of the Eden Project Florilegium Society, a group of botanical artists and illustrators with an interest in plant sciences. Afterwards, you'll have the opportunity to further explore the exhibition in your own time.
This is a wonderful opportunity to gain unique artist insights, whilst enjoying the artworks in a quieter period that allows for deeper enjoyment and contemplation.
