ENDS OF THE EARTH: LAND ART TO 1974
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.
