Land art, variously known as Earth art, environmental art, and Earthworks, is an art movement that
emerged in the 1960s and 1970s, largely associated with Great Britain and the United States but also
includes examples from many countries. As a trend, "land art" expanded boundaries of art by the
materials used and the siting of the works. The materials used were often the materials of the Earth,
including the soil, rocks, vegetation, and water found on-site, and the sites of the works were often
distant from population centers. Though sometimes fairly inaccessible, photo documentation was
commonly brought back to the urban art gallery.
Concerns of the art movement centered around rejection of the commercialization of art-making and
enthusiasm with an emergent ecological movement. The art movement coincided with the popularity of
the rejection of urban living and its counterpart, an enthusiasm for that which is rural. Included in
these inclinations were spiritual yearnings concerning the planet Earth as home to humanity.
In the 1960s and 1970s land art protested "ruthless commercialization" of art in America. During this
period, exponents of land art rejected the museum or gallery as the setting of artistic activity and
developed monumental landscape projects which were beyond the reach of traditional transportable
sculpture and the commercial art market, although photographic documentation was often presented
in normal gallery spaces. Land art was inspired by minimal art and conceptual art but also by modern
movements such as De Stijl, Cubism, minimalism and the work of Constantin Brâncuși and Joseph
Beuys. Many of the artists associated with land art had been involved with minimal art and conceptual
The Earth art of the 1960s were sometimes reminiscent the much older land works, Stonehenge, the
Pyramids, Native American mounds, the Nazca Lines in Peru, Carnac stones and Native American
burial grounds, and often evoked the spirituality of such archeological sites.
Although the precise meaning of each construction varied, the underlying aim of this novel type of
visual art was to create artistic imagery using earth, rocks, soil and other natural material, with a view
to increasing our sensibility towards our environment.
