Library Shelf Location 05.BRAD
Publication Date 2016

Gaia Project is a publishing and curatorial initiative which operates at the intersection of Art and Ecology – or indeed, in that poetic space where Art becomes Ecology, and where Ecology becomes Art.

Elemental is an ‘introductory reader’, comprising a unique collection of essays by some of the world’s leading artists, activists, curators and writers currently working in the expansive, interdisciplinary field of arts and ecology. The book presents critical reflections, and philosophies on a variety of eco-art practices and methodologies.

Subjects areas include: New Materialism, socially-engaged ecosystem restoration, the legal ‘Rights of Nature’, and ecology in theatre and performance art.

The symbiotic environmental, social and economic crises of our era (Climate Change being one significant symptom) have now emerged as a poignant and critically relevant presence throughout culture globally. It is therefore timely and vital that these essays of vision, hope and solidarity are being published.
