Arcadia Now invokes the idea of the pastoral past, and combines art in an ensemble vision of what that pastoral idea, or an idyllic place of remove, might look like in the present. Combining photography, painting, sculpture and video, the exhibition addresses issues of nature and human consequence on nature, beauty and banality, and the ideal and the real in both abstract and figurative terms. How do we “see” the country?
