While ecofeminism and feminist art practice have enjoyed a long relationship, this has largely gone unacknowledged in the recent revival of interest in feminism. This article introduces this relationship, summarises some of the key objections to ecofeminist thought that were raised in the 1990s, and suggests that it might be undergoing a revival in the context of current discussions regarding art and the Anthropocene. It was published in a special issue of 'The Equal Standard', as a complement to the exhibition, 'CrosseXions', curated by Beth Jackson and held at Metro Arts in Brisbane and Alaska Projects and Cross Art Projects in Sydney.
