From rural raves and anti-nuclear protests, to the climate emergency and mythical giants, a new exhibition at Warwick Arts Centre presents a surprising and inspiring view of the British landscape.

Entitled Radical Landscapes (7 October to 18 December 2022), 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.

Among the artists featured are late-20th century greats Henry Moore, Graham Sutherland and Eric Ravilious, contemporary artists Jeremy Deller and Tacita Dean, Birmingham-born painter Hurvin Anderson, surrealist Eileen Agar, and film-maker/artist Derek Jarman.

Radical Landscapes also features contributions from Ingrid Pollard and Veronica Ryan, who've both been nominated for the Turner Prize 2022.

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.
