CAA CONFERENCE PANEL: LAND ART RECONSIDERED
Land Report Collective members Leticia Bajuyo and Jason Brown co-chaired a panel discussion at the 2019 College Art Association conference titled Land Art Reconsidered: land use, water rights and indigenous sovereignty.
The panel took place on Friday, February 15, 2019 (10:30am-12:00pm) at the Hilton Midtown 2nd floor Gramercy East (New York, New York) with panelists Dr. Anya Montiel, Alexis Elton, Audrey Molloy, and Chris Taylor.
Land Art or Earthworks gained attention in the 1960s and 1970s as artists used the natural landscape to create site-specific structures, art forms, and sculptures. In many respects, this work borrowed heavily from ancient cultures and civilizations that created art on a monumental scale in the landscape. Contemporary artists who work in the landscape often extend their interventions and investigations beyond formal aesthetic elements to include conceptual, historical and contextual references. What are the challenges and opportunities facing artists working in the field today who are following in the footsteps of Land Art from earlier time periods?
This panel highlighted the work and research of artists, activists, critics and curators who are engaged in practices that explore land use, water rights and issues of indigenous sovereignty. We are interested in how this dialogue can transcend borders that typically reinforce nationalism and privatization. Indigenous artists are creating very innovative work in response to landscape through a process of truth and reconciliation – can a post-colonial critique effectively challenge globalization through Land Art? How might artists work with local communities to resist socio-economic systems that favor private property? Do forms of social practice and creative place making offer new models for civic engagement to transform public property and the commons? As issues of water rights become more critical to the conversation, how are the fields of environmental and ecological art merging with Land Art?
