The study of climate change can be understood from one perspective as an anthropocentric reaction to changing volumes—of water, of petroleum, of particulate matter in the air—and as a confrontation of the false dialectic that is created when humans attempt to understand themselves as apart from nature. The concept of “preserving the Earth” is no longer relevant. Environmental action is largely driven by and predicated on the idea of finding ways for humans to continue to exist on this planet.
Quiet Earth, an exhibition curated by Fairfax Dorn as part of Marfa Dialogues/New York, features environmentally engaged works from the 1970s to the present.
