While visiting, explore the current exhibition, Between Life and Land: Material part one of a three-part exhibition series focused on telling the stories of our relationship with land through the lens of 30 artists. Each exhibition in the series explores a singular theme to bring a deeper understanding of how this relationship has formed, evolved, and today continues to change.
The exhibition includes three seminal films from the 1970s by renowned land artists Robert Smithson and Nancy Holt. Existing as both documentation and independent artworks, these beautiful films capture Smithson’s and Holt’s time in Utah during the construction of the Spiral Jetty and Sun Tunnels, and invite reflection on the myriad ideas at the core of their practices, among them time, entropy, and the human impact on the environment.
Between Life and Land: Material introduces artists who create work from a direct engagement with earthen forms and materials. From the detail captured in David Brooks’ cast aluminum forests to the variation of soils on view in Mary Mattingly’s Ecotopian Library, this work shows the undeniable beauty in landscapes both near and far while also exploring our connections to place, time, and the larger cosmos.
