In the late 1960s, with the emergence of Land Art, artists began making works that were inextricably bound to their site. These “Earthworks” artists worked on location and used the earth itself as canvas or sculptural material; they created outdoor gestures in often farflung corners of the world that were both anti-monumental and epic in sweep. Because their art evaded the traditional progression from cloistered studio to rarified gallery and museum, the artists were often dependent on photography and mass media to communicate its very existence.
