Avant gardeners - the contemporary garden as an art form

The Old Library, West Dean College

£30

Avant gardeners - the contemporary garden as an art form is a gardening talk with landscape critic and Daily Telegraph garden columnist Tim Richardson.

Tim will discuss landscape and garden conceptualism worldwide, focusing on designs by Martha Schwartz and Kathryn Gustafson. Using artificial materials and bright colours it's the opposite of the English country garden approach, but Tim argues that it often makes sense in urban environments. He coined the term 'landscape conceptualism' and was the first to define what has become an influential international phenomenon.
