No Trespassing: A Survey of Environmental Art

KCET Artbound | Season 9, Episode 6

Throughout its history, the natural beauty of California has inspired artists from around the world from 19th-century plein air painting of pastoral valleys and coasts to early 20th-century photography of the wilderness (embodied famously in the work of Ansel Adams) and the birth of the light and space movement in the 1960s. Today, as artists continue to engage with California’s environment, they echo and critique earlier art practices that represent nature in “The Golden State” in a particular way. Featuring Incendiary Traces creator Hillary Mushkin, Richard Misrach and Laura Aguilar.
