MUSEUM EXHIBITION

TREE STORY

Through April 10, 2021

Visiting Hours: Tue–Fri: 10am–5pm, Sat: 12–5pm

Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA), Australia

 

Reena Kallat presents her works "Siamese Trees" (2018 - 2019) in Tree Story, a group show featuring 30 artists from across ten countries at the Monash University Museum of Art. The exhibition brings together creative practices from around the world to create a "forest" of ideas relating to critical environmental and sustainability issues. At its foundation—or roots—are Indigenous ways of knowing and a recognition of trees as our ancestors and family. An exhibition, publication and podcast series, Tree Story takes inspiration from the underground networks, information sharing and mutual support understood to exist within tree communities, and poses the question: what can we learn from trees and the importance of Country?
