Abstract

Century old art movements have become relevant in modern art especially in conceptual art to address societal issues. Ghana is confronted with sanitation issues of which government interventions have proved futile in dealing with the situation. This art studio experimental study explored the philosophy concept of futurism through conceptual textile art towards sanitation improvement in Ghana. The Studio-Based research approach was employed with adoption of Aesthetico-Action Research model in generating the results. The results revealed that conceptual textile art could be used as a communicative tool through the concept of futurism as the driving force. The results proved the possibility of using textiles waste to depict scenery that by conventions could only be well illustrated by painting. Exploration of major waste materials such as plastics, fabric remnants, papers, etc., through the concept of reuse is recommended to reduce their negative impacts on the environment.
