Art in the Landscape
This session covers the current theories that surround socially and ecologically engaged and remedial art making. This is art that aims to effect the landscape it is made in relation to. This course provides motivations for and assertions about this genre of artistic practice. There is discussion about how to address the following questions: How can aesthetic and ecological concerns be addressed simultaneously? How can environmental and social concerns be addressed simultaneously? In relation to the modernist examples presented, what types of materials should be used in art, and why does an artist chose those materials for a piece? For post-modern examples presented, the concepts of environmental statements from artist are discussed. For contemporary art, connective, relational, and reciprocity aesthetics are explored.
