Earth Art (aka Land Art or Earthworks)
~dawn of the movement was in late 1960s America, coinciding with the nascent ecology movement in America, with its new environmental laws and the creation of the EPA.
~ this art asked people to become more aware of the negative impact they have on the natural environment.
~ the movement took art out of the gallery or museum and into the natural landscape to create site-specific structures, art forms, and sculptures.
~ huge works resulted, as an outgrowth of Conceptualism and Minimalism, which engaged elements of the environment.
~ land art could not be bought or sold on the art market
~ it was created mostly in remote, uninhabited regions of the USA, particularly the American Southwest.
~ photographs & videos were the way most people saw this art work because the works were so inaccessible.
~ That was the way they were first exhibited at the Virginia Dwan Gallery in New York in 1968.
~ Earth art was also a protest against art’s being a salable good. It was deliberately impossible to buy or sell it.
~ installations were mostly mutable, due to nature’s interaction with the piece, which was part of Earth Art’s meaning and thrust.
~ “art supplies” for Earthworks were extracted directly from nature, such as stones, water, gravel, and soil.
~ genre was influenced by prehistoric artworks such as Stonehenge
~ Earth artists mostly left their structures exposed to the elements.
~ inevitable disintegration of the art works put them outside of the mainstream the genre explores: humans up against history, time, and natural processes.
~ since the controversy about the environment became even more contentious in the new century, this art genre, which waxed and waned over the decades,
~ is still alive and well although more global than it was at its start.
~ grants of money are often available for this work because of its high profile with environmental activists, governments and the concept of “public art”.
