Earthworks and the Erasure of History
Date & Time
Friday, October 1, 2021, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Cameron Shaw Cauleen Smith

Cauleen Smith’s film Remote Viewing was made in 2011 in direct response to Robert Smithson’s Partially Buried Woodshed (1970). Smithson's installation was made on the campus of Kent State University in Ohio, just four months before the Kent State massacre. In the early 2000s, Smith’s research turned to Land Art, in particular the disconnect she sensed between the history and politics of the sites of major Earthworks. Smith is joined by Cameron Shaw, Executive Director of the California African American Museum, who will facilitate a dialogue about how the field of Land Art is ripe for disruption.
