Co-curated by Jorge Benitez and Reni Gower

Across the globe and from King to commoner, the garden has provided sustenance and pleasure throughout time in both corporeal and spiritual ways. As in Milton’s Paradise Lost or Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights to Monet’s Giverny or Thoreau’s Walden Pond, artists have often portrayed the garden as an ever-evolving and fertile metaphor for life colored by contrasts. Humble or grandiose; cultivated or wild; lush or arid; ornamental or medicinal; secret or shared; the garden protects and provides as much as it provokes and stimulates. No matter its form during this time of anxiety and uncertainty, The Garden offers a much-needed refuge and heartening reprieve.

The Garden features work by: Jorge Benitez • Ruth Bolduan • Sally Bowring • Cat Crotchett • Reni Gower • Chris Gregson • Melissa Potter • Javier Tapia
