New and existing works by contemporary artists Lee Mingwei, Annalee Davis, Wendy McMurdo and Lyndsay Mann join over 40 established botanical illustrators such as Mieko Ishikawa, Dianne Sutherland and Sansanee Deekrajang in ‘Florilegium: A gathering of flowers’, at Inverleith House, in the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.
Botanical artists from all over the world present detailed studies of plants, revealing how flowers can elicit cultural, historic, geographic, socio-political and scientific ideas, and inviting visitors to explore the rich diversity of RBGE’s extensive Living Collection.
The biennial exhibition is the first of a new programme as Inverleith House begins its transformation into Climate House, following the award of Outset Contemporary Art Fund’s Transformative Grant.
Open daily from 10.30am.
Last admission 4.15pm October; 3.15pm November – December.
Free entry. Please book your time slot to enter the Garden via rbge.org.uk
