> DESCRIPTION

Land Arts of the American West, at the University of New Mexico, is an ongoing experiment in radical interdisciplinary arts pedagogy, with field based research and practice taking place throughout the American Southwest. This program emphasizes direct physical engagement within a full range of human interventions in the landscape, from pre-contact Native American architecture, rock paintings and petroglyphs to contemporary art, federal infrastructure, US military installations, ecological niches, and land use structures across the West. CCA will present a culmination of works from the 2012 Land Arts program, ranging from two-dimensional, sculptural, installation, multi-media, and performance based projects, inducing an interdisciplinary play of research and practice across place.
