> DESCRIPTION

Coinciding with the exhibition, Ends of the Earth: Land Art to 1974 , Los Angeles Filmforum presents a program of films around Robert Smithson's seminal earthwork, Spiral Jetty. Smithson's own film, Spiral Jetty (1970), explores the complex gyre of ideas and associations that inform the creation of the 1,500-foot coil while James Benning's Casting a Glance (2007) bears witness to the work over time. "Map[ping] the Jetty back onto its 37-year history," Benning's film patiently records the artwork interacting with the environment, documenting the effects of light and time upon it. James Benning will introduce the evening’s program.
