Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art

Friday, January 8 - Thursday, January 28, 2016

In the 1960s and ’70s, a group of NYC-based artists abandoned the constraints of gallery spaces and the demands of the marketplace, moving to the expanse of the American Southwest to engage in a radical reconceptualization of their artistic practice. Turning to nature, acclaimed artists like Michael Heizer (Double Negative) and Robert Smithson (Spiral Jetty) challenged accepted notions of scale and exhibition by producing monumental creations out of the earth itself. TROUBLEMAKERS reveals their breathtaking work and their fascinating process. Official selection: New York Film Festival, DOC NYC
