‘NYC’s Land Art from Past & Present’ Webinar
During the 1960s, artists revolutionized our concepts of what art could be: it moved out of the galleries, was made of non-art materials, became performative…and started drawing our attention to nature in many interesting ways. Even though far removed from nature, New York City became a thriving hub for these experimental art pieces — it’s time to explore the value of nature in new ways, through groundbreaking art installations from NYC’s past and present.
Join New York Adventure Club as we explore the hidden, quiet, and ephemeral nature of Land Art in New York City, and the fascinating works throughout the decades that have become an integral part of the city’s fabric.
Led by Sylvia Laudien-Meo — art historian, museum educator, and NYC tour guide — this digital showcase will include:
- An overview of the artists associated with Land Art in NYC since the 1960s
- A look at relevant artworks currently on view in the city, including public art installations, and those in commercial and permanent galleries
- A discussion around the most memorable ephemeral Land Art projects that temporarily ‘lived’ in the city
- A reflection on the lessons to be learned, and inspiration to be found, in these nature-based artworks
Afterward, we’ll have a Q&A with Sylvia — any and all questions about Land Art are welcomed and encouraged!
