WWT London Wetland Centre is delighted to announce Wetlands Unravelled, a year-long contemporary art programme woven throughout the lakes, ponds and reed beds of one of the capital’s largest wetlands.

Curated by Unravelled, who commission and produce site-specific projects inspired by history and place, the programme unfolds over three seasons with new sculptural, installation, video and textile works by ten artists exploring the paradoxes of conservation within the wetlands environment.

Commissions by artists Tania Kovats, Anne Deeming, Jonathan Wright, Gavin Osborn and Alec Stevens launch Wetlands Unravelled on 28 March 2020 at London Wetland Centre.

These are followed in summer with Lizzie Cannon’s new commission, and a curated season of performances, talks and events.

In the autumn, artists Claire Barber, Sharon McElroy, Eloise Moody and Caitlin Heffernan launch new works concluding the programme.

All the artists commissioned for Wetlands Unravelled respond to the topography, wildlife, history and politics of the wetland environment, during the twentieth anniversary year of London Wetland Centre.

Opening times: Summer, 9.30 am to 5.30 pm, 1 March – 31 October, Winter, 9.30 am to 4.30 pm, 1 November – 1 February. www.wwt.org.uk/wetland-centres/london
