GROUNDWORKS: Environmental Collaboration in Contemporary Art
was organized by the Regina Gouger Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon. The exhibition, catalogue and associated conference seeked to clarify the role of artists in questions of nature and culture by addressing questions of policy, efficacy and impact when artists work within a social, ecological and political context. The exhibition presented artworks that are, in effect, case studies in social, ecological change. This will be interpreted in terms of new ideas in dialogic aesthetics, as well as in terms of impact and efficacy at a local level.
This exhibition and conference integrated more established practitioners with emerging groups in the United States, England, Austria, Africa, Japan and Argentina.
