I think Alan Sonfist really hits the nail on the head in this interview by John Grande which appeared in the RSA Arts & Ecology Magazine. The role of the artist in society is evolving. Society needs artists more than ever before and I guess it would help if artists knew what they are doing!
So you would recommend as a strategy for young land and earth artists involved in the public sphere, to try venues outside the art world, natural history museums, botanical gardens and so on and so forth?
All my art involves a clear understanding of environmental issues and their unique relationship with the local community. Within the 21st century we have to redefine the role of the artist as an individual who is actively seeking solutions to improve our world.
