Uncommon Ground. Land Art in Britain 19661979

£9.99  

During a time of seismic cultural and political change, artists on both sides of the Atlantic turned away from the enclosed space of the gallery and went out into the landscape – in Britain, in particular, the result was a revolutionary new form of art.

Uncommon Ground. Land Art in Britain 1966–1979 accompanied the touring exhibition at the Southampton City Art Gallery, organised by the Arts Council Collection (10 May3 August 2013). The catalogue proposes a new perspective of British art between the mid 1960s and late 1970s, placing landscape and nature at the heart of the emerging artistic movements of the period.

Encompassing sculpture, performance, photography, film, Minimalism and Conceptual art, the wide-ranging practices represented in this book engage with the once derided and seemingly exhausted genre of landscape. Alongside artworks by some of the most vital artists of the latter part of the twentieth century, this richly illustrated source book includes a list of key artistic UK sites clearly mapped and explained in relation to the text.

Uncommon Ground features the work of Roger Ackling, Keith Arnatt, Boyle Family, Thomas Joshua Cooper, Tony Cragg, Jan Dibbets, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Barry Flanagan, Hamish Fulton, Andy Goldsworthy, Antony Gormley, Susan Hiller, John Hilliard, Derek Jarman, David Lamelas, John Latham, Richard Long, Roelof Louw, Anthony McCall, Bruce McLean, Garry Fabian Miller, David Nash, Roger Palmer and David Tremlett.
