The Nasher Sculpture Center announces Groundswell: Women of Land Art, an exhibition featuring 12 American artists through installation, sculpture, documentation and historical ephemera, on view from September 23, 2023 to January 7, 2024. In the 1960s American artists began to move beyond the institutional spaces of galleries and museums to work directly in the land. With ties to Minimal and Conceptual art, these artists foregrounded natural materials and the site itself to create works that were large in scale and located outside of typical urban art world circuits. For many years, art historical narratives of Land art have been dominated by men: Robert Smithson, Michael Heizer, Walter de Maria, and others. Groundswell: Women of Land Art, intends to shift that focus to shed new light on the vast number of Land works by women artists, whose careers ran parallel to their better-known male counterparts, yet have received less recognition and representation in museum presentations.
