reGenerations: Environmental Art in California

This exhibition is in conjunction with The Tender Land festival. As a state with great natural diversity and dramatic population growth, California has remained a center for environmental and ecological art. In the past decade, as environmental protections have become increasingly eroded, several emerging artists have pushed environmental art in new directions. This exhibition will survey ecological art in California from the 1960s to today.

Unlike their predecessors, whose works are most often proposals for large-scale environmental restorations or photographic documentations, a younger generation of artists creates sculptures or installations that often effect environmental change directly, or draw attention to significant transformations that have occurred in the environment. Many of these works are site-specific outdoor installations that draw attention to environmental disruptions that would otherwise remain invisible. Artists include Tony Bellaver, Mark Brest van Kempen, Stacey Levy, Daniel McCormick, Matthew Moore, Betty Beaumont, Newton and Helen Harrison. Curated by Jay Belloli and Elise Barclay. On view in the main Gallery.
