Abstract:

  • During the second half of the 20th century, a growing number of artists produced work with an ecological dimension, including such luminaries as: Hans Haacke, The Harrisons, and Mierle Laderman-Ukeles to name a few. This panel will focus on the complex triad of eco-art, situated practices – those modes of engagement that are ordered by the conceptual and physical contingencies that arise from the specific conditions of their site of production, display or distribution, and social practices – varied forms of community engagement, participatory intervention and project-based public work that embrace democratic processes and inspire progressive social, cultural, and environmental change.
