Film screening: Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art

Synopsis

Troublemakers unearths the birth of land art in the late 1960s and early 1970s when a cadre of renegade artists sought to transcend the limitations of painting and sculpture by producing earthworks on a monumental scale in the desolate desert landscape of the American southwest.

Today these works, which include Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty, Michael Heizer’s Double Negative, and Walter De Maria’s Lightning Field, continue to astound and amaze us for their breathtaking audacity.

This screening will be held at 6:00 pm on Friday, January 6, at BSA Space (290 Congress Street, Boston) and is the fourth film in the 2016–2017 BSA Space Film Series documenting some of the ways that architecture and design can engage communities, inspire vision, and provoke change. Complimentary refreshments and popcorn will be served. All proceeds from the series support the BSA Foundation

Film running time: 72 minutes
