Art & Place: Site-Specific Art in the Americas Book Launch
Join Phaidon Press and World Monuments Fund on an unconventional road trip through the history of art and culture in the Americas
Touring exhibitions may come and go, but there's something about the permanence of site-specific art – whether in the mountains, at the heart of a city, or on a remote island – that often trumps works in white cubes across the world. Phaidon’s new release Art & Place celebrates 500 of the most spectacular, uplifting, and outstanding art works across 15 countries, from Canada to Argentina. Featured here are 20 WMF projects, including Chile's Easter Island, the Sanctuary of Jesús Nazareno de Atotonilco in Mexico, and 2014 World Monuments Watch Site the Chinati Foundation.
On Tuesday, November 12, join Amanda Renshaw, Editorial Director of Phaidon Press, along with Lisa Ackerman and Norma Barbacci of World Monuments Fund, for a discussion on the intersection of culture and conservation in today's art environment.
