Manmade: Notions of Landscape from the Lannan Collection features the work of nine artists whose work is an exploration of man and the landscape—not landscape in its most literal sense, but landscape as a construction of meanings and relationships that are always morphing, growing, decaying, and exploding. These various facets of landscape include the natural, the cultural, the social, and the political.

The Lannan Foundation works related to landscape are never of the sort that is a celebration purely of a sublime or pristine nature; rather they are of the terrain inscribed with all manner of human interaction, including manmade creations meant to guide our way through the oceans, earthworks, human-aided natural disaster, and the theatre of war.

The artists in the exhibition are Debbie Fleming Caffery, Thomas Joshua Cooper, Olafur Eliasson, Roni Horn, An-My Lê, Sarah Pickering, Victoria Sambunaris, Robert Smithson, and James Turrell.
