From the Publisher
Art & Place is an extraordinary collection of
site-specific art in the Americas. Featuring hundreds of powerful
art works in 60 cities - from Albuquerque to Boston and Baja to Rio
de Janeiro - the book is both an informative guide and a virtual
bucket list of outstanding art destinations.
Conceived and developed by Phaidon editors, Art &
Place covers carving, painting, murals, frescos, earthworks,
land art, and more. Each of the works has a dedicated entry pairing
gorgeous, large-format images with in-depth descriptions. Maps
pinpoint the sites'' locations while specially commissioned plans
reveal some of the more complex layouts. The book is organized
geographically, offering fresh juxtapositions among familiar art
works, such as Anish Kapoor''s Cloud Gate and Robert Smithson''s
Spiral Jetty, alongside lesser-known revelations, such as Inhotim
Centro de Arte Contemporânea in Brazil. Whether in the mountains,
at the heart of a city, or on a remote island, the works in Art
& Place are all inextricably linked with their
environment. This is art to experience in an immersive way,
presented together in a single book for the first time.
