Beyond Green: Toward a Sustainable Art

Catalog Number: 
book,Smith
Date: 
October 6, 2005
Abstract: 
"The term "sustainability" can be defined simply as the ability to meet our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to satisfy theirs. Balancing environmental, social, economic, and aesthetic concerns, sustainability has spread from the field of contemporary design into the arena of contemporary art. Beyond Green ventures into this fertile new zone, spurred by an international group of visual artists who embrace sustainable design in both theory and practice." "The works and ideas explored in Beyond Green propose cross-disciplinary agendas and renewed activism, combining a fresh visual sensibility with a constructively critical approach to the production, dissemination, and display of art. With essays by curator Stephanie Smith, art historian and theorist Victor Margolin, and texts by over 20 artists, this book and the traveling exhibition it accompanies constitute the first foray into a new area of contemporary art."--Jacket.
