closed Tree Time

The show

Two years after the storm Vaia, the MUSE - Museum of Sciences offers a multisensory journey to be traveled thanks to the works of 20 national and international artists who intertwine with historical-scientific insights, in an immersive itinerary that highlights the urgency to reconfigure our relationship with the giants of the plant world. A reflection that starts from the past and reaches the present, to imagine a sustainable future. It is the time of trees and a new and urgent relationship with the plant universe. At the MUSE - Science Museum of Trento, from 31 October 2020 to 30 May 2021, opens "Tree Time - Art and science for a new alliance with nature", a large exhibition project dedicated to the relationship between human beings and tree. The exhibition, born from a project of the National Museum of the Mountain "Duca degli Abruzzi" in Turin and developed for this new stage with original contents elaborated by MUSE, gives voice to the languages ​​of contemporary art to build a new vision, management and care of trees, woods and forests. A sort of multisensory journey - enriched in the thirty edition by the scientific contributions of scholars, botanists and experts in forest management, as well as new site-specific artistic readings - which evokes visions and possibilities for a dynamic and constructive relationship between human species and natural ecosystems . The invitation, before it's too late, to strengthen our often compromised bond with nature. From the South Korean artist Sunmin Park, at her first Italian exhibition, to the Swiss video artist Ursula Biemann. From the Americans Helen and Newton Harrison, among the first and best known social and environmental artists, to the Polish performer and visual artist Cecylia Malik, through the works of the South Tyrolean sculptor Aron Demetz, the research of the collective of designers Formafantasma and archive materials of famous explorers, climbers and architects.
