The Pulse of Nature 2022
TREEOLOGY OPEN CALL
We launched our first The Pulse of Nature exhibition along with a publishing project of the same name in 2018. Working with artists alongside academics, architects, urbanists, writers from various fields, the project brought together environmental history, local history, ecology, geology, architecture, literature and art.
Since then, we have curated various multidisciplinary exhibitions at our exhibition hall located in a 130-year-old bungalow (classified as a Grade 1 Historic Building). Our past themed exhibitions include: Ecology in the Making - A History of Amateur Naturalists in Hong Kong, The Faces of Lung Fu Shan, What's bothering you, Mr. Bird?, and a touring exhibition to Hong Kong Science Museum, Ecology in the Making (1816-present).
To further unlock the possibilities nature and art can offer, we are calling for curators and artists to submit proposals for a modern art exhibition to be displayed at our centre in the last quarter of 2022. The theme of this upcoming exhibition is ‘Treeology’, a term we coined to combine the elements of ‘trees’ and ‘ecology’. We welcome all artworks inspired by or in response to trees and their ecology.
