DESCRIPTION

Second Site is an exhibition and reference site for LAND/ART, featuring related gallery installations and art works, information and maps for many of the site-specific projects including artists Anne Cooper, Bill Gilbert, Steve Peters, Jaune Quick-To-See Smith and Neal Ambrose Smith, the Center for Land Use Interpretation, Patrick Dougherty, Basia Irland, Nina Dubois and Jeanette Hart-Mann, Nan Masland Erickson, Marc Schmitz, Robert Wilson and the model of the selected piece for the City of Albuquerque's major land-based public art project launched for LAND/ART. SiteWorks artist Anne Cooper presents documentation of the process of creating Anitya, from harvesting of the clay to the dissolution of the bowls and the growth cycles of the crops. Nina DuBois and Jeanette Hart-Mann's collaborative photographic installation relates to the outdoor installation created on the UNM campus a passive-solar composting laboratory. Bill Gilbert's Walk to Work project culminates in a large floor sculpture and a video piece, and Steve Peters' sound piece will be represented with excerpts for listening in the gallery setting.
