Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art

Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art

James Crump

United States | 2015 | 1 h 12 min
A look back at the history of land art in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when a group of renegade artists in New York sought to transcend the limits of painting and sculpture by producing monumental earthworks in the desert landscapes of the American Southwest. These artists, who chose radical artistic experimentation, are presented in a heroic light, which is exactly how they saw themselves. Unpublished archives and interviews with the leading figures in land art, including Robert Smithson (Spiral Jetty), Walter De Maria (The Lightning Field) and Michael Heizer (Double Negative), provide a complete overview of this trend.
