From the press release: 

Contested Landscapes brings together works of art that reexamine the traditional genre of landscape through an ecological lens. By using diverse materials and innovative techniques, the artists reshape representations of geography, topography, and the environment to examine human interaction with the natural world. Among the artists featured are Radcliffe Bailey, Teresita Fernández, Karen Gunderson, Richard Long, Soledad Salamé, and Jennifer Trask. In their works, landscapes become contested sites of power, addressing cultural and environmental concerns. WM
