Mary Miss and Women of Land Art Webinar

The threatened demolition of Mary Miss’ pioneering and influential site-specific installation Greenwood Pond: Double Site in the permanent collection of the Des Moines Art Center is the impetus for a 75-minute webinar about the significance and importance of land art by women artists. While these artists and their diverse body of work continue to gain greater visibility, contextualization, understanding, and appreciation thanks to excellent exhibitions, superb scholarship, and other critical assessments, some of their most important extant works face severe stewardship challenges, while others have been lost.

Leading women land art artists, experts, and scholars will address the current state of the movement and how to insure its future. The event will include introductory remarks by the artist Mary Miss and Charles A. Birnbaum, President & CEO, The Cultural Landscape Foundation. There will be presentations by Leigh Arnold, Curator at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, TX, and organizer of the recent, acclaimed exhibition, Groundswell: Women of Land Art, and Dr. Susanneh Bieber, Associate Professor, Texas A&M University and author of American Artists Engage the Built Environment, 1960-1979. The event moderator is Nancy Princenthal, journalist and former Senior Editor, Art in America, and the respondents are Max Anderson, President, Souls Grown Deep Foundation, and former Museum Director, and artists Alice Aycock and Jody Pinto. Aycock, Miss, and Pinto were all featured in Groundswell.
