ArtSlant - Openings & events en-us 40 Leslie Hewitt, Karel Martens, Zia Haider Rahman - P! - December 17th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">P! is pleased to present <em>Power Structures</em>, a three-person exhibition featuring Leslie Hewitt, Karel Martens, and Zia Haider Rahman. Additive and exponential, the show offers an oblique look at acute questions troubling our political moment.</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Leslie Hewitt</strong> exhibits three works: a black horizontal line bisecting the viewer&rsquo;s gaze and the space it circumscribes; a color photograph that collapses archival documentation and personal memory; and a white sheet metal sculpture from her current project at the Studio Museum Harlem, which evokes paper through its planar folds.&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">Printed on discarded Belgian identity records, a new body of letterpress monoprints by <strong>Karel Martens</strong> extends his signature technique of overprinting metal forms on found materials. Through this combination of figure and ground, past and present, Martens&rsquo; layering reactivates the remainders of a vast bureaucratic archive.</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Zia Haider Rahman</strong>&rsquo;s remarkable novel, <em>In the Light of What We Know</em>, resonates throughout the exhibition. A meditation on colonialism, epistemology, friendship, mathematics, and more, the book will be on sale here at cost. Through this economic gesture, the space reframes itself as a distribution point without profit, a single position from which timely ideas may multiply their dividends into the world.</p> Wed, 17 Dec 2014 10:10:07 +0000 Group Show - Causey Contemporary - December 18th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="section"><br /> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p><strong>A Tangled Web opens in December at Causey Contemporary For Immediate Release</strong></p> <p><strong>Media Contact:

 Contact: 917-328-3140<br /></strong><strong></strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Causey Contemporary is pleased to announce the opening of their December exhibition, A Tangled Wed curated by D. Dominick Lombardi. The exhibition will open with a reception on December 18 beginning at 6 pm and run through January 22, 2015 at the gallery&rsquo;s Manhattan location: 29 Orchard St., Ny, NY 10002. Below find Mr. Lombardi&rsquo;s curatorial vision for the exhibition.</p> <p>&ldquo;Each generation of visual artists has a percentage of participants that believe they have come up with something new. Later on, maybe through exposure or a discussion, they discover that their original contribution is clearly connected to another work of art they spotted on line or in print, whether it was made previously or as a contemporary work, which has some sort of common ground. It is at this point that one may come to realize that what they thought was fresh and different is part of a fluid and flexible stream of connected thoughts, a linkage that can span all time &ndash; a collective consciousness.</p> <p>In the end, it is secondary as to who did what first, where influences come from, or who or what inspires you because the time in your studio is unique. It is your era and culture and you, with all of your experiences, pre- thoughts, open-mindedness and leanings are a unique filter and that will never change. All one needs to do is wonder.&rdquo;</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="page" title="Page 2"> <div class="section"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>For this exhibition, Dominick has selected seven artists from Causey Contemporary and paired each with an artist who they do not know or are aware of who share a connection that he suspects is sourced through a collective consciousness.</p> <p>Abstract painter Lisa Pressman and representational painter James St Clair both have a compelling fascination with the tension and movement in weighty masses of form and color, while mixed media artists Michel Demanche and Jen P. Harris present beautiful, storybook-like vignettes in layered narratives.</p> <p>Elise Freda and Moses Hoskins are mix media artists as well, only here, the response to external stimuli results in something that is close to automatic, with strong overtones of controlled progression. Melissa Murray and D. Dominick Lombardi mix bits of reality with the foils of fantasy as they utilize patterns to drive their narratives</p> <p>Black and white photographers Marielis Seyler and John Wyatt project the emotional state of their subjects by way of imposing strong and focused compositional elements as opposed to Howard Gross and Victor Matthews who employ visually stimulating complex patterning and linear movement.</p> <p>The art of conceptual sculptors John J. Richardson and Arcady Kotler, who both share the medium rubber, challenges the viewer to rethink the ways in which they perceive the most basic aspects of reality.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>For information on A tangled Web exhibition opening this December at Causey Contemporary, contact Director, Tracy Causey-Jeffery at 917-328-3140 or via email at</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Artist Biographies for A Tangled Web. </strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Lisa Pressman :</strong></p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="page" title="Page 4"> <div class="section"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>Lisa Pressman is an American artist.

I am&nbsp;interested in collections, sentimentality and in recall. With regard to production I&nbsp;am interested in investigating how still and moving images can deliver meaning,&nbsp;and structure compositions, objects, and installations in a way that reproduces&nbsp;the quality of the first-hand encounter. I work to better understand and to convey&nbsp;to the viewer the contradictions and tensions that exist in active experience;&nbsp;between absence and presence, the urban and the natural, and the authentic and&nbsp;the invented. The ultimate goal remains to deliver the viewer into&nbsp;a fully formed state of awareness that forwards concept and motivates productive&nbsp;conversation.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">I explore and question the value of &ldquo;essentializing&rdquo; meanings as they relate to&nbsp;time, movement, thought, action, emotion and ultimately, communication. Far&nbsp;from a reduction or simplification of effect I am interested in exploring how these&nbsp;essential practices can reveal deeper more visceral investigations into life,&nbsp;environment and history (both personal and cultural). Balance, as a way of&nbsp;working, conceptually and materially is at the heart of all that I do. To this end,&nbsp;for the last several years I have been seeking out details that are often taken for&nbsp;granted through the use of photography, sculpture, animation and video. As&nbsp;opposed to imaging the spectacular, I seek the sublime in the small-scale and the&nbsp;overlooked.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Catalogue Essay:&nbsp;</strong><a href="" target="_blank">"On the Work of Julia Hechtman" by Evan Smith</a></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Julia Hechtman</strong> is an interdisciplinary artist based in Boston.

Running from December 18<sup>th</sup>- January 31<sup>st</sup>, 2015. &nbsp;</p> <p>Sara Crisp&rsquo;s recent encaustic work is influenced by the inherent cyclical reproduction process of flowers and her recent reading of the elegant scientific essay written by Louise Eisley, <em>How Flowers Change the World</em> (1907-77)<em>. </em>Through her artistic journey and research she has found herself one with nature. As in her early encaustic work she still presents and preserves the organic purity of nature and its symmetry. The complexity and nuances of flowers exemplify the complexity of all that is living.</p> <p>After moving from the city to the countyy in Maine she has found herself through her surroundings. Surrounded by nature and having inherited a garden, her self-awareness and artistic vocabulary has broadened. The mundane is once again exulted and celebrated. Reminding us that of the incongruous characteristic of nature and its beauty.</p> Wed, 10 Dec 2014 22:23:37 +0000 Lisa Dinhofer, Thomas Edwards, Mark Hadjipateras, Robert Pillsbury, John Schiff, Charles Toder - Denise Bibro Fine Art - December 18th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p align="center">&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Denise Bibro Fine Art</strong>, in Chelsea, New York is pleased to announce <em>Meaning In Print</em>, a print show featuring six very talented print makers; <strong>Lisa Dinhofer, Thomas Edwards, Mark Hadjipateras, Robert Pillsbury, John Schiff </strong>and<strong> Charles Yoder. </strong>Running from December 18<sup>th</sup>- January 31<sup>st</sup>, 2015.</p> <p><strong>Robert Pillsbury</strong> and <strong>Charles Yoder</strong> seek nature and landscape as a source of inspiration for their work.

The artist lives and works in Portland, Oregon A snowman kept alive inside a freezer; their natural habitat shrinking, snowpeople may now live inside freezers in order to survive, and we can keep them on life support as a signifier of man's &lsquo;triumph over nature.&rsquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In his <em>Captive Snowman </em>series (ongoing since 2002), Conkle sculpts with real snow in large freezers and thus creates a substitute environment for a natural material. In this instillation, the artist continues to explore his theme of man&rsquo;s place in nature and gives an ironic commentary of environmental and political issues. The work combines art with humor to address serious issues. The freezer acts as artificial life support for something that occurs in the outdoors, but when the world heats up a few degrees can no longer survive out there. Taken inside an artificial environment as to save it or perhaps capture it to make a trophy case, the snowman can exist forever as long as the freezer is plugged in. We saved the last snowman from melting and now it is domesticated like an animal in a zoo waiting for extinction .</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Bruce Conkle declares an affinity for mysterious natural phenomenon such as snow, crystals, volcanos, rainbows, fire, tree burls, and meteorites. He examines contemporary attitudes toward the environment, including deforestation, climate change, and extinction. Conkle's work often deals with man's place within nature, and frequently examines what he calls the "misfit quotient" at the crossroads. &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Bruce Conkle received his B.A. from the University of Oregon at Eugene and his M.F.A. from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ. His work has shown around the world, including Reykjavik, Ulaanbaatar, Rio De Janeiro, New York, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Seattle, and Portland. Recent projects include public art commissions for the Oregon Department of Transportation, TriMet/ MAX Light Rail, and Portland State University's Smith Memorial Student Union Public Art + Residency. In 2011 Bruce received a Hallie Ford Fellowship and in 2010 and an Oregon Arts Commission Artist Fellowship. His 2012 show Tree Clouds was awarded a project grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council.</p> Tue, 18 Nov 2014 13:30:47 +0000 Angelo Filomeno - Galerie Lelong - December 18th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Galerie Lelong is pleased to present <em>The House of Magic Affection</em>, an exhibition of intricately designed and embroidered paintings by Italian artist Angelo Filomeno. Over a dozen recent paintings will fill the main gallery, paired with a series of intimate works on linen in the gallery&rsquo;s project space. Highlighting Filomeno&rsquo;s technical and aesthetic skill in merging painting, embroidery, and craft, his unique visual language is presented through a variety of rich materials including silk, crystal, and metal. In a departure from his last exhibition, Filomeno introduces a serialism not seen in his previous bodies of work, an expanded use of color and materials, including muslin, and a variety of characters that have never before been incorporated into each of the hand-made canvases. The artist will be present for the opening on Thursday, December 18 from 6-8PM.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Presenting immediately alluring, albeit complex, imagery has long been the foundation of Filomeno&rsquo;s work in his exploration of themes such as death, destruction, isolation, and obsession. Drawn from and aligned with the artist&rsquo;s personal history, Filomeno&rsquo;s work as a child apprentice to a clothes tailor still informs his intricate technique and production as both art and skilled craft. Often blending elements from his personal history with his fantastical imagery, the exhibition&rsquo;s title, The House of Magic Affection, references the artist&rsquo;s childhood home.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In this exhibition Filomeno maintains his careful attention to the interplay between texture, material, content, and presentation, attracting viewers to his constructed canvases with the juxtaposition of often unsettling content and aesthetic refinement. Filomeno&rsquo;s iconography, in contrast to the allure of his work, often incorporates and explores the allegorical and the macabre, including insects, fish, human body parts, skeletons, and reptiles. In addition to the paintings, two recent sculptures will be on view, further revealing Filomeno&rsquo;s world of ominous beauty and extraordinary workmanship.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><br />Angelo Filomeno was born in Ostuni, Italy in 1963 and has lived in New York since 1992. He has had solo museum exhibitions at the Savannah College of Art and Design, Atlanta, Georgia; Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville, Tennessee; Italian Cultural Institute of New York, New York, and the Italian Cultural Institute of Toronto, Canada. His work has been included in major international biennials including the 52nd Venice Biennale (2007) and ARS 06 at the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki, Finland. Filomeno's work can be found in several public collections, including the Centre Pompidou, Paris; 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa; 21C Museum, Louisville; and Museum of Art &amp; Design, New York. Work was recently on view at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York in the exhibition Re:Collection. In 2015 Filomeno&rsquo;s work will be included the exhibition Threaded at the Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech opening on February 12. The House of Magic Affection is Filomeno&rsquo;s third exhibition with Galerie Lelong.</p> Thu, 18 Dec 2014 07:45:56 +0000 Tom Goldenberg - George Billis Gallery- NY - December 18th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p>Recent landscapes from the veteran New York painter and one-time abstractionist Tom Goldenberg will be on view at the George Billis Gallery in Chelsea from December 16 &ndash; January 24. Using traditional painting techniques, Tom Goldenberg creates vivid depictions of the natural world and paints exclusively with handmade pigments that he grinds himself. Bringing a sure sense of space and structure to his depictions of gnarled vegetation and intricately woven vistas, Goldenberg captures turbulent rhythms and the flux of the ever-changing landscapes of our worlds and minds.</p> Fri, 05 Dec 2014 19:35:32 +0000 - Josee Bienvenu Gallery - December 18th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p class="p3" style="text-align: justify;">Jos&eacute;e Bienvenu is pleased to present the third installment of "Present,"&nbsp;a series of guest-curated exhibitions in the Project Space.<br /> <br /> Born in 1995 in New York City, Josie Roland Hodson is currently a sophomore studying at Stanford University in California. She is majoring in Art History with a focus on contemporary art.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Keris Salmon&rsquo;s first gallery exhibition, &ldquo;Don&rsquo;t Knock at the Door, Little Child,&rdquo; presents a collection of photographs of a Tennessee tobacco plantation, Wessyngton Plantation, that, in their quietude, relay a sense of the unease entrenched in the history of slavery.</p> <p class="p3" style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition is titled after a line from &ldquo;Black Woman,&rdquo;&nbsp;a poem by&nbsp;Georgia Douglas Johnson.&nbsp;Johnson, a revered poet of the Harlem Renaissance, fears bringing a child into the world in which she lives: &ldquo;The world is cruel, cruel, child, / I cannot let you in!&rdquo; she writes. &nbsp;The exhibition explores many relationships &mdash; Salmon&rsquo;s relationship to her own past, her relationship with her white partner&nbsp;and his family&rsquo;s implication in slavery, and, finally, her relationship with her children, and a future generation that will continue to grapple with an identity born from a tragic history.</p> <p class="p3" style="text-align: justify;">Salmon&rsquo;s direct connection to this plantation was born out of her relationship with her long-time partner, a white man whose family had once owned Wessyngton. The descendants sold the 2,300 acre property in the 1980s. In 2009, a book called &ldquo;The Washingtons of Wessyngton&rdquo; by John Baker was published, scrupulously detailing the life on Wessyngton plantation. A museum exhibit at the Tennessee State Museum soon followed the book. Salmon and her partner went down to the opening. The emotionally-charged visit prompted Salmon, trained as a journalist, to produce these works: &ldquo;I had read Baker's fine book, and had an anecdotal knowledge of some of Wessyngton's history as recounted to me by Frank - the hams they smoked there were widely reknowned. But it wasn&rsquo;t until I was rolling past the imposing iron gates and setting foot on the frost-flecked property the day after the museum opening that I was drawn to create something that came equally from my curiosity as a journalist and my instincts as a visual thinker,&rdquo; she&nbsp;writes.<br /> <br /> The 6 photographs in this series combine exterior images of the house as it now stands, with text&nbsp;drawn&nbsp;from Baker's book, much of which is available at the Robertson County&nbsp;Historical&nbsp;Society outside of Nashville. They are the first installment of a larger project she is developing on antebellum plantations. Salmon worked with letterpress master printer Peter Kruty to come up with a typeface and type design that best reflected some of the most widely disseminated publications of the pre-war era: slave auction and runaway posters.</p> <p class="p3" style="text-align: justify;">Salmon &mdash; a third generation New Yorker &mdash; has never lived in the South nor spent any time on or around plantations, and yet there is an undeniable impression of familiarity displayed in these images and their accompanying text, biographical passages reappropriated as poetry. In this familiarity, the images become the&nbsp;story of the&nbsp;collective internalized trauma of a generation and of a race. Through these photographs, Salmon explores a relationship with a place and time in which she has never lived, and yet feels a kinship to, one that has persisted throughout her life and will into future generations &mdash; namely, mine.</p> <p class="p4" style="text-align: justify;">I am a young curator and Salmon&rsquo;s daughter. I have never been to the South, never visited Wessyngton plantation, and yet in these images are evoked memories that have been etched into me not through personal experience but through a collective memory. Recent racially charged events igniting protests from Missouri to New York are only further proof that the systemic racism that both produced and haunted the walls of Wessyngton and burdened my mother&rsquo;s life, has not abated but quietly transformed.<br /> <br /> - Josie Roland Hodson<br /> <br /> Born in Manhattan, Keris Salmon lives and works in Brooklyn. This is Salmon's first solo exhibition, select group exhibitions include: <em>The Migration</em>, Arsenal Gallery, New York (2015), <em>Free For All</em>, Space Gallery, Portland, ME (2012), <em>Feast Your Eyes</em>, Powerhouse Arena, Brooklyn (2012).</p> Thu, 18 Dec 2014 10:34:13 +0000 Group Show - Koenig & Clinton - December 18th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Wed, 03 Dec 2014 15:28:11 +0000 Elaine Forrest - Noho Gallery - M55 Art (Noho - M55) - December 18th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p><strong><em>Upcycled</em></strong></p> <p>Reconstructed consumer packaging becomes pop art inspired social commentary</p> Thu, 09 Oct 2014 16:09:04 +0000 - Recess Activities, Inc. - December 18th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">On November 4, Chris Domenick will begin work on You are Apple/Pear as part of Recess&rsquo;s signature program, Session. Session invites artists to use Recess&rsquo;s public space as studio, exhibition venue and grounds for experimentation.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Over the course of his Session, Domenick will explore the historical genre of the still life and its accompanying fruit basket. The fruit basket&rsquo;s political implications of ownership and display and its significance in the history of Modernism have physically transformed into a smoothie: a singular metaphor for multiplicity. Domenick will investigate how objects are constantly negotiating their component parts.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>solid sphere liquifies- becomes particle, laminated, blended into unified texture.</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Domenick will collect objects that reflect the surrounding local economy of Soho. He will explore the various possibilities of how to combine the collected objects and will utilize linguistic devices (metaphor, metonymy, and synecdoche) to playfully rewrite their histories. Through this process, he will address the shifting subjectivity of objects and the resulting impact on the construction of identity. He will ask how inanimate objects enable human subjects to transform themselves, and survey the consequences of this shift.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>The apple is: a container for meaning, a complex web of disparate points, a symbol of evil, a historical corruption, a curious tween, the viewer.</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Recess&rsquo;s space will operate as an interstitial workspace between private studio, photo booth for objects, and public exhibition space. Three customized commercial photography still life tables will be used in the space as sculptural tableaus and sites for ever-changing still life set-ups. In addition to the tables there will be a constructed kitchen island in the center of the space where a blender will be stationed and utilized throughout the Session.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>About the Artist:</strong><br /> Chris Domenick is a visual artist who currently lives and works in Queens, NY.

The installation is a vibrating sound experiment that aims to transform the architecture into animated sensible form. Conceived as a sound object that absorbs and contrasts the site specificity of the Storefront Gallery with abstract, spatial, formal and acoustic variations and compositions,&nbsp;<em>Situation NY</em>&nbsp;raises questions about context, sensorial readings, estrangement and the uncanny tangentially resonating with contemporary debates around the ontology of objects.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong> <em>SITUATION NY</em> </strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">by Jana Winderen and Marc Fornes /&nbsp;THEVERYMANY</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong> <br /> </strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Fabrication by</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">bengal.fierro</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Commissioned by&nbsp;</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Storefront for Art and Architecture</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>With the support of&nbsp;</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Robert Rauschenberg Foundation</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">More infomation <a href=";p=&amp;e=661" target="_blank">here</a>.</p> Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:45:24 +0000 Lindsay Abromaitis-Smith, Rebecca Arndt, Misha Braun, Sarah Lafferty, Jessica Scott, Christopher Spanninga, Caroline Yes - FiveMyles - December 19th 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>&ldquo;The night before I was diagnosed with ALS I dreamed of a goddess made entirely of flowers and plants that told me I had to learn how to physically manifest differently.

a &nbsp;portion &nbsp;of &nbsp;all &nbsp;the &nbsp;show&rsquo;s &nbsp;proceeds &nbsp;will &nbsp;benefit &nbsp;the &nbsp;Museum &nbsp;of &nbsp;New &nbsp;Mexico&nbsp; Foundation. &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Time &nbsp;to &nbsp;Hit &nbsp;the &nbsp;Road &nbsp;is &nbsp;the &nbsp;culmination &nbsp;of &nbsp;a &nbsp;great, &nbsp;collaborative &nbsp;adventure, &nbsp;reflecting&nbsp; the &nbsp;experiences &nbsp;of &nbsp;dozens &nbsp;of &nbsp;artists &nbsp;who &nbsp;participated &nbsp;in &nbsp;the &nbsp;Gerson &nbsp;Zevi &nbsp;Land &nbsp;Art &nbsp;Road&nbsp; Trip. &nbsp;Over &nbsp;the &nbsp;last &nbsp;two &nbsp;years, &nbsp;more &nbsp;than &nbsp;sixty &nbsp;young &nbsp;artists &nbsp;participated &nbsp;in &nbsp;this&nbsp; exploration &nbsp;of &nbsp;the &nbsp;open &nbsp;road, &nbsp;learning &nbsp;new &nbsp;things &nbsp;about &nbsp;themselves &nbsp;and &nbsp;about &nbsp;the&nbsp; world &nbsp;around &nbsp;them. &nbsp;Now, &nbsp;for &nbsp;the &nbsp;first &nbsp;time, &nbsp;their &nbsp;work &nbsp;will &nbsp;be &nbsp;displayed &nbsp;in &nbsp;a &nbsp;group &nbsp;show at &nbsp;Leila &nbsp;Heller &nbsp;Gallery &nbsp;in &nbsp;New &nbsp;York &nbsp;City. &nbsp;Here, &nbsp;thousands &nbsp;of &nbsp;miles &nbsp;from &nbsp;the &nbsp;dirt &nbsp;roads &nbsp;and&nbsp; dusty &nbsp;cliffs &nbsp;of &nbsp;the &nbsp;desert, &nbsp;this &nbsp;remarkable &nbsp;group &nbsp;comes &nbsp;together &nbsp;once &nbsp;again &nbsp;to &nbsp;show &nbsp;how&nbsp; the &nbsp;creative &nbsp;journey &nbsp;has &nbsp;inspired &nbsp;their &nbsp;artistic &nbsp;practice. &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In &nbsp;the &nbsp;summers &nbsp;of &nbsp;2013 &nbsp;and &nbsp;2014, &nbsp;these &nbsp;artists &nbsp;spent &nbsp;up &nbsp;to &nbsp;a &nbsp;month &nbsp;at &nbsp;a &nbsp;time &nbsp;traveling&nbsp; together &nbsp;across &nbsp;the &nbsp;Southwest, &nbsp;exploring &nbsp;iconic &nbsp;works &nbsp;of &nbsp;land &nbsp;art &nbsp;by &nbsp;Robert &nbsp;Smithson,&nbsp; Michael &nbsp;Heizer, &nbsp;Nancy &nbsp;Holt, &nbsp;and &nbsp;Walter &nbsp;de &nbsp;Maria. &nbsp;Much &nbsp;like &nbsp;the &nbsp;artists &nbsp;whose &nbsp;works&nbsp; they &nbsp;visited, &nbsp;these &nbsp;new &nbsp;explorers &nbsp;spent &nbsp;days &nbsp;at &nbsp;a &nbsp;time &nbsp;outdoors, &nbsp;in &nbsp;close &nbsp;contact &nbsp;with&nbsp; the &nbsp;works, &nbsp;nature, &nbsp;each &nbsp;other, &nbsp;and &nbsp;little &nbsp;else. &nbsp;Retracing &nbsp;these &nbsp;steps, &nbsp;these &nbsp;road &nbsp;trips&nbsp; exposed &nbsp;this &nbsp;group &nbsp;of &nbsp;artists &nbsp;to &nbsp;life-&shy;‐changing, &nbsp;defining &nbsp;experiences, &nbsp;continuing &nbsp;the&nbsp; legacy &nbsp;of &nbsp;pioneering &nbsp;Land &nbsp;Artists &nbsp;who &nbsp;took &nbsp;their &nbsp;practice &nbsp;beyond &nbsp;the &nbsp;confines &nbsp;of&nbsp;
