Land Arts of the American West Exhibition 2017
Land Arts of the American West [LAAW] is an interdisciplinary, field-based studio art program at the University of New Mexico. During the program students travel extensively throughout the Southwest, engaging in a variety of processes and experiences from heritage preservation along the banks of the Rio Grande, to exploring the cultural importance of the contested Bears Ears National Monument. This exhibition features work by the artists—created on site, or in response to their experiences out in the field investigating what has been thematically characterized as the “Rights of Nature.”

Meridel Rubenstein, Eden Turned on Its Side
Meridel Rubenstein, Eden Turned on Its Side is a major photographic artwork comprised of three parts: Photosynthesis, Volcano Cycle, and Eden in Iraq. The work is about human relationships to the environment on the scales of human time, geological time, and mythical time. Photosynthesis focuses on the natural cycle of the seasons and our interdependence on trees for our existence, including the very air we breathe. Volcano Cycle documents the active volcanoes of the Indonesian Ring of Fire to consider ecological change on the non-human scale of deep, geological time. Eden in Iraq explores environmental devastation and renewal at the site of Biblical Eden in Southern Iraq.
