DESCRIPTION

The work of nine artists will be featured in Manmade: Notions of Landscape from the Lannan Collection. Landscape is often thought of as a pristine wilderness, uninhabited and unmarred by human presence, despite the fact that for many decades now landscape has in practice been represented as incontrovertibly interconnected with mankind and the land itself has been the very material of artmaking.

Manmade is an exhibition primarily of photography, including images of James Turrell’s earthwork project Roden Crater, as well as a significant Robert Smithson installation.
