Description - Art & Place by Adrian Locke

Art & Place is an extraordinary collection of outstanding art destinations in the Americas, visited by millions of people every year.The book features hundreds of powerful and spectacular art works, all created by an artist specifically for their location -whether indoors, outdoors, desert, in the mountains or in the middle of a city. This is art to experience -in an immersive way -presented together in a single book for the first time.From the monumental sculptures of Richard Serra to the grand land art of Robert Smithson, and from the to the oversized public installations of Claus Oldenburg to Diego Rivera's History of Mexico in Mexico City, Art & Place is the only book to compile all the best of site-specific art of North, Central and South America.Featuring beloved site-specific art in 60 cities-from Albuquerque to Washington, DC and from Baja to Rio de Janeiro. Each of the works has a dedicated entry that includes large-format images with an explanation of how the artist adapted their work to its environment.Art & Place presents works geographically rather than chronologically, allowing fresh juxtapositions and exciting opportunities for comparison to arise, as a spread of rock art may appear next to a contemporary sculpture. Covering everything from carving and painting, murals and frescos, mosaics, altarpieces, tapestries, integral sculpture, stained glass, earthworks and land art, there is something for everyone in this one-of-a-kind book.
