Set to open on 29 April, the exhibition ‘Parque del Drago, 1998-2023: 25 years around the thousand-year-old dragon tree,’ curated by Fernando Menis, will be presented by Luis Fernández-Galiano at the Visitor Center of Dragon Tree Park, in the Tenerife municipality of Icod de los Vinos. On view through 29 May, the show offers a detailed look at the 40-year recovery of biodiversity around the symbolic tree of the Canary Islands – 16 meters tall and with a 20-meter circumference at the bottom – and celebrates the 25 years of the park that is its home and protector and which was formed by the intense activity that tourism brought around it, endangering it to the point that visits had to be stopped. Dragon Tree Park is the fruit of a 1984 ideas competition that was won by Fernando Martín Menis, Felipe Artengo Rufino, and Jose María Rodríguez Pastrana. Efforts are being made now to complete the Visitor Center, designed by the same team of architects and the cause of a juridical controversy in 2023. This exhibition is part of ‘Islands of the World,’ a project that aims to further Canarian biodiversity and place cultural and natural tourism back in a central place.
