LAND-ART-NATURE

Thursday, October 17
Emerging in the late 1960s and early 1970s, artists of the Land art movement turned their attention to creating art in and about nature. While acknowledging important practitioners of the art form in North America, such as Robert Smithson, Walter de Maria, and Michael Heizer, Joseph Mella, Director of Vanderbilt's Fine Arts Gallery, will focus more so on the British tradition including the artists Richard Long, Hamish Fulton, Chris Drury, and Andy Goldsworthy. The presentation will also touch on controlled, highly articulate installations within gardens, as seen in the work of Ian Hamilton Finlay, whose art can be found on Cheekwood’s Carell Woodland Sculpture Trail. The ultimate goal is to provide a context for which to view Bruce Munro’s interventions in the gardens of Cheekwood.
