Developed by MOCA for Ends of the Earth: Land Art to 1974, this interactive feature maps key artworks included in the exhibition, pinpointing their original locations to demonstrate the global nature of Land art and its relationship to real places and times. Click on an artist’s name to begin. Ends of the Earth: Land Art to 1974 is the first large-scale, historical-thematic exhibition to deal broadly with Land art, capturing the simultaneous impulse emergent in the 1960s to use the earth as an artistic medium and to locate works in remote sites far from familiar art contexts. Organized by MOCA Senior Curator Philipp Kaiser and co-curator Miwon Kwon, Professor of Art History at UCLA, the exhibition highlights the early years of untested artistic experimentations and concludes in the mid-1970s before Land art becomes a fully institutionalized category. Major support is provided by Barbara Kruger and L&M Arts, LA. The exhibition is also made possible by Kathi and Gary Cypres. Related:  Land Art

CDOT: Christo's Over the River will get serious traffic review Posted: 06/21/2012 12:57:05 PM MDT This artist's drawing provided by Christo shows an image of a proposed art project by artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude that would suspend 5.9 miles of silvery, translucent fabric above parts of the Arkansas River in southern Colorado. (Provided by Christo | via AP) Christo's Over The River project, which calls for draping huge fabric panels from cables over parts of the Arkansas River, will be carefully scrutinized for its potential impact on traffic on U.S. 50 — just like any other huge project, Colorado Department of Transportation officials said today. The $50 million art installation is being attacked by a group from Cañon City as being dangerous, especially to anyone living near the headwaters of the Arkansas River and in Bighorn Sheep Canyon. The group, Rags Over the Arkansas River (ROAR), offered their objections to the state Transportation Commission today. ROAR also presented studies attesting to the dangers of the project to the commission.

Perm (russie): Combinaisons gagnantes Le résultat, très réussi, permet d'appréhender l'évolution de la réflexion picturale au fil des cinquante dernières années et de démontrer combien sa richesse et sa diversité restent d'actualité. « Beaucoup d'artistes aujourd'hui touchent à l'installation ou à la sculpture, tout en reprenant des arguments autrefois propres à la peinture, rappelle Alexandra Fau. Loin d'être exhaustives, ces douze « combinaisons » constituent une bien belle entrée en matière, dont on ne peut qu'espérer qu'elle sera suivie de développements futurs, qui seront autant d'occasions de pénétrer toujours plus avant les territoires fabuleux de la peinture contemporaine.

World Community Grid - Accueil Impermanent Sand Paintings by Andres Amador San Francisco-area landscape artist Andreas Amador etches massive sand drawings onto beaches during full moons when his canvas reaches its largest potential. Using only a rake and often several helpers the geometric and organic shapes are slowly carved into the sand, often interacting with the physical topography like the stones in a zen garden. The works exist for only a few moments, just long enough to snap a few photographs before being completely engulfed by the encroaching tide.

The time period covered spans the 1960s to 1974, when, in the context of Land Art, movements such as Conceptual Art, Minimal Art, Happenings, Performance Art, and Arte povera, became more distinct and began to diverge.

Watson Vous avez sûrement entendu parler de Watson et de ses performances dans le jeu Jeopardy! relayés dans tous les médias. L’intérêt de Watson ne réside pas dans sa capacité à gagner au jeu télévisé mais dans son très vaste champ d'applications dans la vie de tous les jours, par exemple dans le monde de la santé pour améliorer la rapidité et la précision des diagnostics médicaux et aider à la prise de décision sur une urgence médicale ou rechercher les interactions potentielles de médicaments.

Desert Breath | Danae Stratou Desert Breath | Land Art project | by D.A.ST. Arteam | 1997 Desert Breath is a Land Art project created by D.A.ST. Arteam. The team was founded in 1995 by: Danae Stratou (installation artist), Alexandra Stratou (industrial designer & architect), Stella Konstantinidis (architect), for the purpose of creating this project. The project is rooted in our common desire to work in the desert. Desert Breath expands in an area of 100.000 m2, in the eastern Sahara desert bordering the Red Sea in El Gouna, Egypt. Located between the sea and a body of mountains at the point where the immensity of the sea meets the immensity of the desert, the work functions on two different levels in terms of viewpoint: from above as a visual image, and from the ground, walking the spiral pathway, a physical experience. The construction of Desert Breath was completed in March 1997. D.A.ST. Scroll down to watch documentation video

Egyptian Desert Sand Spiral In the eastern Sahara desert bordering the Red Sea stands Desert Breath, a stunning land-art project comprised of perfectly-formed cones and a glistening pool of water. Nestled between the hills on the Egyptian desert floor, this site-specific installation was the work of D.A.ST. Arteam, made up of Danae Stratou (installation artist), Alexandra Stratou (industrial designer and architect), and Stella Constantindies (architect). They spent from 1995 to 1997 working on Desert Breath, relocating 8,000 square meters of sand to create what we see here. The terrain was the the driving force behind Desert Breath, and the three women formed D.A.ST. Although it’s been 17 years since the project’s completion, Desert Breath still remains.
