Tree Time

Art and science for a new alliance with nature

Based on an idea and exhibition project by the National Mountain Museum (Museo Nazionale della Montagna "Duca degli Abruzzi") in Turin, the Tree Time exhibition lends voice to the languages of art for new vision, management  and care of trees, woods and forests. 


Trees are our biggest ally in maintaining the climatic and atmospheric equilibria of the planet. They cover almost 30% of the earth's surface and many form the fascinating complex ecosystems that are forests.  
A deterioration in forest conditions inevitably also reflects on our quality of life, exposing us to increasing uncertainty and unexpected events every day. In response, we are seeing an emergence of a new awareness of the impact that human interference has on natural ecosystems and the urgent need to rebuild forms of sustainable coexistence for the future. 

On show: Gabriela Albergaria, Emanuela Ascari, Simone Berti, Ursula Biemann and Paulo Tavares, Walter Bonatti, Gabriella Ciancimino, Aron Demetz, Hannes Egger, Sam Falls, Helen Mayer Harrison & Newton Harrison, Jiri Havel, Cesare Leonardi and Franca Stagi, Cecylia Malik, Federico Ortica, Sunmin Park, Steve Peters, Giusy Pirrotta, Craig Richards, Vittorio Sella, Giorgia Severi, Formafantasma, Mali Weil, Museo Wunderkammer, and Ermenegildo Zegna.
