To Make a Tree: Gustav Metzger: My Life in Wood

Thursday 25 October, 2012 - 9pm

Booking essential.

Please call the Information Desk on 020 7522 7888 to check ticket availability and to book.

A new series of artist-led talks addressing the expanded significance of the tree in contemporary art – from conceptual proposition to poetic metaphor or political statement. 

London-based artist Gustav Metzger talks about his life in wood - from his work as a cabinet maker and gardener to recent art projects including Flailing Trees (2009–2010), his work which upended 21 willows, exposing their roots to the sky as a comment on environmental change. Followed by conversation with writer and curator Clive Phillpot.

Concessions and members are kindly asked to show proof or ID when collecting tickets on the night.
