ALFREDO JAAR : THE GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL
From 21 September 2019
Widely regarded as one of the world’s most politically engaging yet poetic artists, Jaar addresses humanitarian trauma, inequalities and injustices around the world.
The original version of this work was displayed outside the Underground Gallery. Generously donated by the artist and a/political, this iteration of the work sees the cells permanently installed within this young woodland, opening up this area of the Park for the first time. Visitors are invited to walk amongst the trees to discover the hidden structures.

HOLLY HENDRY
Sep 21, 2019 - Apr 19, 2020
Hendry’s practice often focuses on themes of decay, the body, material use and re-use, and she has incorporated these ideas with her fascination with the imitation of life to create her first kinetic sculpture alongside other new work for this exhibition The Dump is Full of Images.

MELVYN EVANS : IMPRINTING THE LAND
Nov 16, 2019 - Feb 23, 2020
Widely exhibited throughout the UK, including at the Royal Academy, the Royal College of Art and Somerset House, the Kent-based artist initially trained as a marine engineer spending time working on submarines, before becoming a professional artist in 1992. Since this time, Evans has developed a signature style of strong, bold imagery, with inspiration coming from artists such as Edward Bawden, Eric Ravilious, Henry Moore and the St Ives School. His work is informed by the British coastline, its landscape and working practices. Monuments, chalk figures, coastal paths, fishing boats, and Thames barges all play a part in the artist’s work, evoking a sense of place by recognisable landmarks and the use of a carefully considered colour palette.
