A wide-ranging exploration of human interactions with the land over thousands of years, as well as a model for teaching art and design in the field.
Chris Taylor is a Harvard-trained architect who teaches architecture at Texas Tech University. In conjunction with the Architecture Workers Combine, he explores the direct and interstitial forces creating landscape with built work in New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and Pennsylvania. Bill Gilbert holds the Lannan Chair in Land Arts of the American West in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of New Mexico. His art practice explores the dialogue between environment and cultures in the Southwest. He has exhibited his work in the United States, Ecuador, the Czech Republic, Canada, and Japan.
"Land Arts of the American West is notable for presenting an unusually wide array of artistic exploration and intervention in the Western landscape, and for having a remarkably large frame of historical reference... Given the range of sites presented and the depth of analysis that many of them receive, I can imagine that this book would have broad appeal not only to people interested in art, but also to those intrigued by landscape, land use, and Western history."
