Tree Story (Pre-order)
Now taking pre-orders – publication will ship mid-March.
Tree Story brings together creative practices from around the world to create a ‘forest’ of ideas relating to critical environmental and sustainability issues. At its foundation—or roots—are Indigenous ways of knowing and a recognition of trees as our ancestors and family.
Produced to accompany a major international group exhibition at Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne (6 February to 10 April 2021), the publication features contributions by artists, activists, ecologists, scholars, curators and authors that foreground First Nations’ knowledges, reflect on the rights and agency of trees, explore notions of cultural heritage and tree networks, consider trees as witnesses, acknowledge loss in times of climate emergency and ask: what can we learn from trees and the importance of Country?
Featuring varied contributions from thirty-three exhibiting Australian and international artists and projects in a fully illustrated colour section—ranging from 1970s environmental actions to experiments in plant communications—Tree Story also includes newly commissioned and republished texts by Sissy Eileen Austin, Vanessa I. Cavanagh, Madeleine Collie, Sophie Cunningham, Nick Modrzewski, Suzanne Simard, and a conversation between Brian Martin and Brook Garru Andrew.
