London Wetland Centre presents Wetlands Unravelled, a programme of contemporary art exploring the paradoxes of conservation in the wetlands environment.


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

Artists Tania Kovats, Anne Deeming, Jonathan Wright, Gavin Osborn and Alec Stevens launch Wetlands Unravelled in March 2020 at London Wetland Centre, followed by Lizzie Cannon in the summer in parallel to a programme of performances, talks and events, and Claire Barber, Sharon McElroy, Eloise Moody and Caitlin Heffernan in the autumn. The new commissions respond to the topography, wildlife, history and politics of the wetland environment, during the twentieth anniversary year of London Wetland Centre.
