Discipline: Art

(1968)

First conceived at the exhibition at the Dwan Gallery (1968), this movement is related to environment art and earth works. It rejects modern commercialization, embracing instead ecological issues through the creation of art in and with nature.

Typical of this conceptual movement are the geometric arrangements in the landscape by British artist RICHARD LONG (1945- ) (for instance, A Line made by Walking, 1967), recorded in the museum space through photographic documentation, maps and site material.
