The Libraries is partnering with Northrop on an exhibit titled Earth~Art~Movement: Andy Goldsworthy and Land Art, which runs through November 10 in Northrop Atrium.
About the Exhibition
The exhibition features a multi-media installation, a large-scale rock installation, and a tableau of cropped photographs that illustrate the breadth and innovation of Andy Goldsworthy’s land art. Like the dancer leaning and diving into space, gesturing with arms, legs, skull, lumbar, hips, and sacrum, earth art is a choreography of sticks, grass, dirt, snow, water, stones — the temporality of both dance and art leaving traces of light and energy.
What: Earth-Art-Movement: Andy Goldsworthy and Land Art
When: October 9 through November 10, 2017
