Art & Place: Site-Specific Art of the Americas | Phaidon



Perhaps some of North and South America’s boldest and most exciting public art is housed not just in its museums, but in its churches, plazas and desert canyons. This book, featuring works by Robert Smithson, Anish Kapoor, as well as works as ancient as the Nasca lines in Peru is a reminder of that. Over 500 artworks from all periods, arranged geographically across fifteen countries that span the Americans, from Canada to Argentina, have been specially selected by experts and painstakingly photographed. The result is a book that both a succinct survey of styles and techniques for individual reflection and a guide to exploring future destinations.
