Land Art:
Past, Present, Futures 

John Hawley Olds LaGatta Gallery | Floor 3
Robert Z. Hawkins Gallery | Floor 3

Drawn primarily from the Nevada Museum of Art permanent art and archive collections, along with loans from private collections, this exhibition combines work by prominent and lesser-known artists whose works interrogate the definition of Land Art and question the established canon. While much of the world remains enchanted by the monumental land-based desert works that emerged in the American West in the late 1960s and 70s, there is equal interest among practitioners seeking to create, critique, contextualize, perform, and engage in environmental and social dialogue about art of the land.

Artists featured include Vito Acconci, Lita Albuquerque, Ulrike Arnold, Milton Becerra, Stig Broegger, Jackie Brookner, Judy Chicago, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Agnes Denes, Elmgren & Dragset. Justin Favela, Regina Jose Galindo, Andy Goldsworthy, Helen Mayer and Newton Harrison, Michael Heizer, Nancy Holt, Maya Lin, Cannupa Hanska Luger, Walter De Maria, Ana Mendieta, the Optics Division of Metabolic Studio, Nora Naranjo Morse, Dennis Oppenheim, Postcommodity, Federico Silva, James Turrell, Cauleen Smith, Reko Rennie, Ugo Rondinone, Oscar Tuazon, James Turrell, and Raheleh Zomorrodinia.
