The Tree of Life: New Images of an Ancient Symbol

A Southbank Centre Touring Exhibition in association with Common Ground

Sat 6 Oct – Sat 10 Nov 1990

Over 100 artists responded to the open submission competition run by Common Ground to celebrate a contemporary expression of the age old and universal symbol of the tree. The final selection is a stimulating group of work by twenty artists, sculptors, printmakers and photographers.

Marina Warner and Oliver Rackham have written for the exhibition catalogue and an audio visual programme explores the image of the tree in the religions of the world.
