Nancy Holt: Land Art

A pioneer in conceptual and public art, Nancy Holt is a key member of the Land Art movement, which began in the late 1960s with artists in New York taking their work out of the gallery and into the landscape.

Holt is most well-known for her large-scale sculptural works in the environment, such as Sun Tunnels (1976). Four concrete tunnels, 18ft long and 9ft in diameter, are aligned in pairs along an axis of the rising and setting sun on a summer or winter solstice.

Alongside her sculptures Holt has always used photography and film, not only to document her work, but as a continuation of her interest in with memory, perception, time and space. This exhibition focuses on Holt’s photography and film, from Trail Markers (1969) made on visit to Dartmoor with her husband Robert Smithson, to photographs of Sun Tunnels in The Great Basin Desert in Northern Utah.
