Art for Earth’s Sake


Dodos, a FedEx box city, and a neon lake at the International Center of Photography in New York City


In a time of rapid global environmental change, the Ecotopia exhibition at the International Center of Photography in New York City demonstrates the ways in which 39 international, contemporary artists view the natural world. From mattresses lodged in trees in Biloxi, Mississippi to imaginary encounters with the dodo on Mauritius Island, these images offer a peek at some of the pieces on display.
