The arts can offer a path for renewal through visual and responsive engagement.
EcoHope must exist alongside EcoDespair, but the arts can offer a path for renewal through visual and responsive engagement. The artist-activists in this exhibition are intercessors and illuminators — whether the work is conceptual, allegorical or metaphorical, or representational and specific — who examine and address systemic environmental failure through remediation, confrontation, education, personal lived actions of the artist, or simply by drawing attention and asking the viewer to respond.
