Dundee DD1 4HN
As human beings we are all dependent on the land and the resources it provides. Yet we are increasingly becoming disconnected from the natural world around us and our overexploitation of the land is causing an environmental crisis. This thought-provoking exhibition looks at ways in which we have explored, represented and exploited the land and how artists in Scotland have responded to these themes over the years.
All of the artworks, artefacts and specimens on display come from the University’s Museum Collections. The exhibition is divided into various inter-related themes:
- Representing the Land
- Urbanisation, parks and gardens
- Flora and Fauna
- Recording the Land
- Exploiting the Land
- Returning to Nature
- Evidence of the Past
- Environmental Crisis
Open Mon-Fri 9.30am-7pm, Sat 11am-4pm. The Tower Building may close earlier on some weekdays so we advise arriving no later than 5pm.
