Universitys Attenborough Arts Centre to host plant and pollination themed art exhibitions

Our Attenborough Arts Centre will host two new contemporary art exhibitions in its brand new gallery spaces this summer, from 23 July – Sunday 25 September.

‘Plant Culture, selected from the Arts Council Collection’ and ‘Every Last Mouthful’ by artists Chatwin: Martin. Both exhibitions are inspired by nature and bring together different artistic representations of plant life and wildlife.

Plant Culture will investigate the relationship between humans and plants. The exhibition includes over 20 artworks drawn from the Arts Council Collection alongside work by international artists and loans from the British Council’s art collection.

Every Last Mouthful by Leicestershire based artists Chatwin: Martin highlights a range of work exploring the plight of our planet's bees. Over the last 14 years the duo have been engaged in both artistic and scientific research projects, working closely with international entomologists – scientist who study insects.

As well as the exhibitions, the Centre will be hosting Plant Culture Family workshops and Guided tours in the gallery spaces, plus you can join exhibiting artist John Newling and Dr Richard Gornall, Director of the University of Leicester Botanic Gardens, for a talk and tour of the Plant Culture exhibition at Attenborough Arts Centre on Thursday 8 September and a tour of the Botanic Garden on Friday 9 September.
