Environmental art, Intermedia, Sculpture, Performance and Activism

Elizabeth Stephens is a performance artist, filmmaker, activist and educator. Her artwork, performance art and writing have explored themes of queerness, feminism and environmentalism for over 25 years. Her current focus is SexEcology: the art of exploring the Earth as a lover. Stephens is creating this new field of research in collaboration with her partner Annie Sprinkle. Together they are the movers and shakers of the ecosex movement within the field of SexEcology. Stephens and Sprinkle are making environmental art a little more sexy, fun and diverse through their performance, visual art and award winning film, Goodbye Gauley Mountain: An Ecosexual Love Story. Stephens’ work has been exhibited, performed and screened nationally and internationally.
