SOLD OUT – Softening the Land Art Scene: Judy Chicago’s Atmospheres

SOLD OUT – Softening the Land Art Scene: Judy Chicago’s Atmospheres

Judy Chicago’s response to the monumental Earthworks of the American West was nearly simultaneous with their production. Beginning in 1968, Chicago embarked on a series of ephemeral Atmospheres performances using colored smokes and fireworks in the desert that were intended to “soften that macho Land Art scene.” Long overlooked by art historians and scholars, Chicago’s Atmospheres offer a critical counterpoint and essential context to the predominantly male Land Artists working in the desert during the 1960s and 70s. Chicago will be in conversation with William L. Fox, Peter E. Pool Director, Center for Art + Environment at the Nevada Museum of Art.
