The land has a history, an interweaving of human culture and natural history. The layers are deep and profound, but equally, disappear to re-emerge transformed.

In his lecture, writer and curator John K. Grande will provide a fine-tuned look at the Land Art movement comparing and contrasting the large-scale American art with the more social, intimate and ultimately earth-sensitive British and European sculptors and artists of the time.

From Richard Long, Barry Flanagan, David Nash, Hamish Fulton, and Andy Goldsworthy through to Peter Randall-Page, Jason deCaires Taylor and Chris Drury, British artists have taken a remarkably different tangent to working in the land in part because of the intertwining of nature and human culture has a history here in Britain.

All this is to affirm nature is the art we are a part of. This talk is part of our programming celebrating the exhibition, Infinite Beauty
