This fully illustrated 248-page book accompanies the first comprehensive American retrospective of Robert Smithson’s (19381973) complex and highly influential career. Straddling the movements of minimalism and land art, Smithson, who died in a plane crash at the age of 35, had a profound impact on the cultural landscape that resonates to this day. Robert Smithson presents essays by top Smithson scholars alongside both archival imagery and specially commissioned photography of the artist’s works; it considers the interrelationship of Smithson’s complete artistic output, from the earliest figurative work up to his famed earthworks.
