Land Report Collective - Extraction: Land Use Through the Lens of Consumption part of the panel discussion Changing the Future: Collectives, Collaboration, and Activism
The Land Report Collective explores issues of land use and extraction, not only through the industrialized landscape but also human impact on rural and wild landscapes. As artists working in the Anthropocene, we seek to create dialogue about climate change through art projects and community engagement. Working with topics of land use, water rights, and indigenous sovereignty we question extractive capitalism as a form of settler colonialism that exploits both natural resources and people.
We have been working with other artists and collectives in order to expand our networks and be more inclusive in amplifying marginalized voices. EXTRACTION: Art on the Edge of the Abyss is a multimedia, multi-venue, cross-border art intervention which seeks to provoke societal change by exposing and interrogating the negative social and environmental consequences of industrialized natural resource extraction. A global coalition of artists and creators committed to shining a light on all forms of extractive industries, the Extraction Project includes exhibitions, performances, installations, site-specific work, land art, street art, publications, poetry readings, and cross-media events throughout 2021 and beyond.

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 (10:30 am-12:00 pm) 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 the 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 placemaking 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?
