Motivated by the question of how the arts can contribute to communication on sustainable development, this study makes a sociological-anthropological analysis of the reception of an international contemporary art exhibition on sustainability in Valparaíso, Chile. The public’s aesthetic experience demonstrates that art, through sensual components and aesthetic strategies that lead to reflection can advance susceptibility to questions of sustainable development. This potential can point to gaps in the local public discussion on sustainability, but it is not capable of filling them.
