This talk will focus on the development and history of the curatorial platform ecoartspace, highlighting specific exhibitions and programs, and projects presented to the public over the last twenty years. Founded by Patricia Watts in 1997, the nonprofit platform has operated without a permanent space supporting hundreds of artists addressing environmental issues in the USA. Watts will also discuss different approaches artists have taken through the years, and where she believes artists today can focus their energies with the greatest results.
