Tacita Dean The Getty Center

In the late 1960s and 1970s, American artists challenged the concept of modern art by creating land art—large-scale, outdoor earthworks—away from urban centers. Related to the theme of the Getty Research Institute's current exhibition Monumentality, this event will screen two 16 mm films: Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty (1970) and Charles and Ray Eames's Powers of 10 (1977).

After the screening, curator Frances Terpak will moderate a discussion with writer and activist Lucy Lippard and artists Tacita Dean and Edward Ranney about their own engagement with land art.
