“Modern Desert Markings”

July 8


“Modern Desert Markings: An Homage to Las Vegas Area Land Art” is an exhibition that uses contemporary perspectives to critique five historic works of Land Art located in the deserts of Southern Nevada. Curators Katie Hoffman and Hikmet Sidney Loe have selected ten artists from around the United States to produce new work inspired by foundational pieces of Land Art created by Walter De Maria (1935-2013), Michael Heizer (1944 -), and Jean Tinguely (1925-91). Working in drawing, sculpture, photography, video, and more, the ten artists bring fresh and critical eyes to these celebrated works from the 1960s and 70s, using a diversity of approaches to address related issues such as land ownership, desert ecology, and tourism.

On exhibit through July 8.
