ARTLandish: Land Art on Film
Thursday, February 25 | 7 pm | FREE
J. Willard Marriott LibraryGould Auditorium
Documentation, specifically photographic and filmic, was imperative for Land artists working in remote locations in the 1960s and 70s. Even today, film often provides the only means of sharing fleeting performances and ephemeral works in the landscape. This one-night-only screening includes a range of film and video works capturing artist interventions in the landscape over the last forty years.
