Land Art:






Pub Date: 
Publisher:  Princeton Architectural Press
Summary: Land Art examines a particular movement in art history, often described as "earthworks," that began in the United States in the late 1960s. This movement, which revolutionized how art is created and perceived, includes such artists as Christo, Walter De Maria, Michael Heizer, Nancy Holt, Robert Morris, Robert Smithson, and Dennis Oppenheim, among others. Copiously illustrated in color and black and white, Land Art is... a comprehensive presentation of the work of these great artists and an invaluable analysis of this radical art form. The medium of these works of art is the earth itself, earth that has been handled, ploughed, dug, piled, leveled, smoothed, cut. Yet, these projects also engage the land in a larger sense, entering into a relationship of reciprocity with the earth - a process of dialog with the environment. The projects are represented through numerous large-format drawings and photographs, including aerial views, allowing the works to be seen from multiple perspectives. Among the many works discussed in this book are Walter De Maria's Lightening Field, Christo's Running Fence, Michael Heizer's Double Negative, Robert Smithson's The Spiral Jetty, and James Turrell's Roden Crater. Along with Gilles Tiberghien's insightful text, Land Art also includes maps locating the projects; a full index of the projects; the transcript of a discussion among Michael Heizer, Dennis Oppenheim, and Robert Smithson; and essays by Robert Morris, Nancy Holt, and Robert Smithson. Please see the Introduction to Land Art) Of related interest is the Christo project The Wrapped Reichstag (Be warned, at last visit this was a virtually inscrutible site of the Netscape 1.1 variety. Approach with caution.)

Gilles Tiberghien is the author of Land Art:, published 1996 under ISBN 9781568980409 and 156898040X. Two Land Art: textbooks are available for sale on ValoreBooks.com, one used from the cheapest price of $162.00, or buy new starting at $171.80.
