Earth-Art-Movement: Andy Goldsworthy and Land Art

By October 24, 2017September 16th, 2023No Comments

The Libraries is partnering with Northrop on an exhibit titled Earth~Art~Movement: Andy Goldsworthy and Land Art, which runs through November 10 in Northrop Atrium. 

About the Exhibition

The exhibition features a multi-media installation, a large-scale rock installation, and a tableau of cropped photographs that illustrate the breadth and innovation of Andy Goldsworthy’s land art. Like the dancer leaning and diving into space, gesturing with arms, legs, skull, lumbar, hips, and sacrum, earth art is a choreography of sticks, grass, dirt, snow, water, stones — the temporality of both dance and art leaving traces of light and energy.
