Hales is delighted to announce the inclusion of Anwar Jalal Shemza in Radical Landscapes at the Mead Gallery, Warwick University, through 18 December 2022.
From rural raves and anti-nuclear protests, to the climate emergency and mythical giants, Radical Landscapes presents a surprising and inspiring view of the British landscape. The exhibition - which comes from Tate Liverpool - includes over 100 paintings, prints, photographs, textile-based works, sculptures, installations, multi-media pieces spanning a hundred years.
Exploring themes of common land, land use and identity, and responses to the climate emergency, notable works on display include Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp banners by Thalia Campbell, Alan Lodge's photographs of '80s-'90s raves, and Peter Kennard's 1980 Haywain With Cruise Missiles collage, which cleverly places Cruise missiles into John Constable's iconic 19th century landscape painting, The Hay Wain.
