"At the core of Natural Selection lies a deeply entangled set of questions around the connection between art and nature, our relationship to the natural world and humanity's age-old desire to collect objects of beauty." [https://www.creativetourist.com/event/andy-holden-peter-holden-natural-selection/] Sara Jaspan Creative Tourist Exhibition Editor.

_Natural Selection_ marks the culmination of a five-year collaboration between artist Andy Holden and his father, the well-known ornithologist Peter Holden. Their collaborative work takes us on an ornithological journey: from the building of nests to the collecting of eggs.

Featuring objects, sculptures, videos and animation, the exhibition has been conceived to celebrate an astonishing diversity of natural forms and embrace different ways of looking.  At first glance, it may appear to be about one kind of knowledge – natural history – but it is equally concerned with social history, aesthetics and communication.  Through their investigation into often over-looked subjects, the Holdens open up different areas of enquiry such as morphology, evolution, intelligence and creativity, as well as reflecting on the nature of collaboration and parental influence.

Andy Holden will be in conversation with Peter Holden at the Gallery on Friday 8 June, 2pm, booking essential.

_Natural Selection_ Kids Lunch Bag just £3.75 - available from the Tiled Hall Cafe and City Museum Cafe all through the summer holidays.

Natural Selection was commissioned by Artangel, Towner Art Gallery, Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, and Leeds Art Gallery, with the support of the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Spike Island and Bristol Green Capital 2015, the Henry Moore Foundation and Artangel’s Guardian Angels.
