Join the Nevada Museum of Art virtually beginning September 23 for Land Art: Past, Present, Futures — the first Art + Environment event presented and now expanded into a subscription series.
The 2021 A + E Season will encompass 13 virtual discussions and talks by 25 distinguished speakers, five gallery exhibitions in Reno, a live outdoor performance in Las Vegas by Rose B. Simpson, and a major publication: a 256-page, lavishly illustrated book, published by the Museum and Monacelli, titled Gianfranco Gorgoni: Land Art, featuring an essay by the late Germano Celant.
Presentations will begin on September 23 with a conversation between scholars Philipp Kaiser and Miwon Kwon, and will conclude on November 19 with a lecture by critic Lucy R. Lippard on “Land Art: Overlooking, Overlaying.”
Other speakers include Chad Alligood, Edgar Arceneaux, Judy Chicago, Justin Favela, Cannupa Hanska Luger, Mary Miss, Cameron Shaw, Rose B. Simson, Cauleen Smith, Rupert Steele, and Oscar Tuazon, among others.
Exhibitions on view will be the contemporary survey Land Art: Expanding the Atlas; Gianfranco Gorgoni: Land Art Photographs; Judy Chicago: Dry Ice, Smoke, and Fireworks Archive; Disturbances in the Field: Art in the High Desert from Andrea Zittel’s A-Z West to High Desert Test Sites; and Rose B. Simpson: The Four. As an extension of The Four, Simpson will present a “transformance” — an artistic performance aimed at public transformation — at an outdoor site in Las Vegas.
Subscriptions to the season include the option to receive Season in a Box, a commemorative package that includes the new book Gianfranco Gorgoni: Land Art Photographs and the comprehensive 2019 Monacelli Press book Michael Heizer: The Once and Future Monuments.
