2021 Art + Environment Conference

October 21 through 23, 2021

Commemorating 50 years of Land Art, the Nevada Museum of Art convenes its triennial 2021 Art + Environment Conference on the subject of Land Art: Past, Present, and Futures. The gathering will bring together prominent artists, art historians, and critics who have shaped the pioneering genre, alongside interdisciplinary scholars, artists, and social activists who are exploring “What’s next?”

While much of the global art world remains enchanted by the monumental land-based desert works that emerged in the American West in the late 60s and 70s, there is equal interest among practitioners seeking to critique, contextualize, perform, and engage in environmental and social dialogue about art of the land. Join the Art + Environment community as it probes topics ranging from iconic earthworks to new dialogues surrounding contested lands, sustainable living, and ancestral futures.
