|Description:||Catalogue published in conjunction with the exhibition 'Eco-Art' at the Pori Art Museum in Finland from 4 February to 29 May 2011. Photographic prints, drawings, videos, installations and wall paintings of contemporary artists in Land and Environmental Art from the United States, Canada, Japan and Europe are presented in this exhibition.
'As the landscape and environment change on our planet for a number of reasons, artists' engagement with these issues increasingly moves from a theoretical and conceptual bias to direct action and process-oriented art, or alternatively an art that involved landscape integration as part of its vernacular. The discourse on art and ecology has become important.
Eco-Art reinforces a new vision of art through the various artists' presentations, an alternative to economies of scale more like art in scale with nature, and ecological systems. As we can see from the beginnings of Earth and Land Art, this art form is evolving. Increasingly ephemeral earth art attracts a truly global and inter-cultural participation.' - from back cover.
A short description and illustrations of each artist's works in the exhibition are included. A timeline of the history of Environment and Land Art is presented in this catalogue.
Please note that only artist of Asian origin is indexed.
