Earthworks for the Present
Date & Time
Thursday, September 30, 2021, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Kelly Kivland Lisa Le Feuvre

Why does Land Art matter today? Lisa Le Feuvre, Executive Director of the Holt/Smithson Foundation, thinks through how the histories and futures of Earthworks help us to consider changing place on our planet. With particular attention on the work of Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson, she will propose how the creative legacies of these two artists can draw on memory and inspiration to underline and complicate artistic engagement with the landscape in our present moment. Kelly Kivland, Chief Curator & Director of Exhibitions, Wexner Center for the Arts, will describe current efforts that prioritize engagement, build long-term relationships with local communities, and acknowledge past erasure of the environment and social histories specific to these sites.
