Land Art/Earthworks: Expanding the Boundaries of Art
Dedicated in honor of Rita and Bob Rubin
Land Art/Earthworks is an art movement that emerged in the 1960s and 1970s, mainly in the United States and Great Britain. As a trend, "Land art" expanded boundaries of art by the materials used and the siting of the works. The materials mainly used were rocks, soil, vegetation and water found on-site. These works were often created in non-populated areas. Though sometimes fairly inaccessible, there was always photo documentation of the projects. This art movement coincided with the concerns around spiritual yearnings concerning planet Earth. Tobi Kahn will discuss 8 luminaries of the movement.
