Landscape Rebels

An exhibition of artworks exploring the human impact on landscape. 


A new exhibition at Christchurch Mansion exploring how human impacts, including the climate crisis, are changing the landscape. How has landscape been depicted by artists, makers and people from Suffolk to across the world. Can these Landscape Rebels offer solutions to the environmental crisis?

The exhibition brings together artworks by Turner, Constable and Monet, alongside natural history, costume, and global stories. It will show a variety of creative responses to the landscape. Contemporary commissions will form a part of the exhibition and events programme, highlighting ways we can engage with nature, art and our landscape.

Landscape Rebels will feature JMW Turner’s painting of ‘Walton Bridges’, widely regarded as the first oil painting by the artist to have been based on oil sketches made in the open air.
