Landscapes of Extraction: The Art of Mining in the American West

$ 40.00

Catalogue to accompany the exhibition, Landscapes of Extraction: The Art of Mining in the American West, on view at Phoenix Art Museum November 7, 2021 - March 6, 2022.

This exhibition, of more than fifty works of varying media and subject matter, explores the historical and contemporary impact of the mining industry on the people, places, and prosperity of the Southwest. From earlier works that celebrate the sweat of the brow and the romance of industry and productivity, to contemporary works that examine the environmental impact of mining on our desert home, Landscapes of Extraction offers a nuanced examination of the intersection of humanity, multilayered as the landscapes featured in its painting and prints, and  that both the exhibition and this accompanying catalogue will open the door to conversations about the future of industry and sustainability in the Southwest.
