Beyond Green: Toward a Sustainable Art

Beyond Green: Toward a Sustainable Art Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Balancing environmental, ethical, economic, and aesthetic concerns, sustainable design has the potential to transform everyday life and has already dramatically reshaped the practice of architecture. Beyond Green introduces a new generation of international artists who work at the intersection of sustainable design and contemporary art.

The book explores the ways that this design strategy is being used-and sometimes intentionally misused-by an emerging group of artists who combine fresh aesthetic sensibilities with constructively critical approaches to the production, dissemination, and display of their art. Lavishly illustrated, the book also includes texts by and interviews with individual artists, along with substantial essays by exhibition curator Stephanie Smith and design historian Victor Margolin. What results is a bracing volume that will be of interest to practitioners and aficionados of design and art alike, as well as to environmentalists.

About the Author

Stephanie Smith is curator at the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago. Victor Margolin is professor of art and design history at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
