Ends of the Earth: Art of the Land to 1974 (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This book traces the origins of the artistic impulses to use the earth as a medium and to locate works in remote sites, far from familiar art contexts. In doing so, Ends of the Earth will challenge the ideas that Land art was primarily a North American phenomenon, that it was foremost a sculptural practice, and that it sought an articulation outside the confines of the gallery. Essays by leading scholars will discuss the origins of Land art, its intrinsic connection to media, the attraction of wastelands, and the problems inherent in a historical evaluation of site-specific works. The book will also include a series of reflections from the most important curators, critics, and dealers of the time. A companion volume to the first large-scale exhibition on Land art, this book promises to be the definitive catalogue on the subject.

Philipp Kaiser is senior curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. He has written extensively on contemporary art. Miwon Kwon is professor of art history at the University of California, Los Angeles. She is the author of numerous publications on contemporary art, architecture, and urban studies.
