About this event
Melissa Dabakis is an American and Modern European Art History professor at Kenyon College. She will speak on contemporary environmental art and site-specific sculpture during the Great Plains Art Museum’s First Friday event. “Ecoventions: Art on the Farm” Since the 1960s, there has been a surge of interest in the environment among contemporary artists. Labeled by art critics and curators as the “geographical turn in contemporary art,” this new artistic practice is a collaborative and interdisciplinary endeavor. This talk will focus on Ecoventions, the blending of ecology and invention by artists who employ creative strategies to physically transform a local ecology. This program is funded in part by Humanities Nebraska and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. The event is free and open to the public.
