Eulogy to those who lost their life at sea, Kate Genever, pencil on paper, 2019. 

Land Marks

2 May – 28 November 2024

This exhibition, organised by MA Art Museum and Gallery students, explores our relationship to the natural environment through a curated collection of landscape art from the 1960s to today.

It features the work of contemporary artist Kate Genever, whose practice is rooted in ideas of community, place and environment.

Over five thematic sections: Co-existence, Fragility, Memory, Reclamation and Conflict, the exhibition asks us to consider how we have shaped the landscape, and in return how the landscape leaves its mark on us.  

Including works by: Peter Berrisford, Peter Blake, Boyd and Evans, Reg Cartwright, Jenny Cook, Matthew Cook, P J Crook, Heather Deedman, Arabella Dorman, Terry Frost, Kate Genever, Andrew Scott George, Rigby Graham, Fay Godwin, Claire Halifax, Paul Hill, Albert Houtheuesen, Anita Klein, Ian McDonald, William McQuitty, Paul Nash, Margaret Norton, Alan Reynolds, Bridget Riley, Peter Sumpter, Ken Symonds, Laetitia Yhap.

Works lent by Leicester County Council Collection through Creative Learning Services and by Kate Genever.

Land Marks - Panel Discussion

9 May 2024, 5.30pm - 6.30pm (doors open at 5.00pm), Museum Studies Building

Following the land marks exhibition, AMAGS will be bringing together three guests from the disciplines of art and geography (Kate Genever, Professor Martin Phillips and Dr Rosemary Shirley) for a free panel discussion to share their practice and research. 

This discussion will be framed by the themes of vulnerability and possibility, from which the panellists will consider and explore questions on the human impact of landscape both negatively and positively.

Admission to the event is free, with walk-ins welcome and free refreshments.
