Talk | 1970s Land Art in the American Southwest

Talks, February 26, 2020, 02/26/2020, 1970s Land Art in the American Southwest

Wednesday, February 26, 2020, 6:00 pm

Free

Emerging in the late 1960s, the land art movement was created by pioneering artists--the most well-known being Robert Smithson, Michael Heizer, Nancy Holt and Walter De Maria. They rejected traditional museums and commercial galleries, considering the experience of visiting them as "stale" and "senseless." Their early sculptures using natural materials like dirt, rocks, and plants evolved into site-specific explorations and interventions that incorporated the surrounding environment and introduced--but sometimes removed--objects both natural and man-made.

They were especially attracted to the vast spaces and austere emptiness of the American Southwest, which offered an abundance of space and material far removed from the art world and urban centers. The land is not the setting for the work but a part of the work. --Walter De Maria

This talk is based on the June 2017 travels of mural artist/historian/curator Jane Weissman. Covering 4,566 miles in a rented SUV through spectacular scenery and following vague directions over rocky, inhospitable roads, she visited Heizer's Double Negative (NV), Holt's Sun Tunnels (UT), Smithson's Spiral Jetty (UT) and De Maria's The Lightning Field (NM).

Using her own photographs and the words of the artists, Jane takes you on a journey to the little known/visited works (past and in-development) of these and other artists--e.g., James Turrell and Charles Ross. She discusses the development of their work, the philosophies that inform them, and their effect on the surrounding landscape.
