Book cinema tickets This film was released 13th May 2016, and is no longer screening. EXCLUSIVELY AT IFI The movement known as land art principally emerged in the 1960s out of a frustration felt by a group of artists about the constraints imposed upon them by the commercial gallery and art market. Inspired by a convergence of ideas relating in part to history and technology, they moved primarily to the unpopulated expanse of the American Southwest to produce some of the most ambitious and breath-taking sculptural works of the 20th century. James Crump’s lm shrewdly focuses not just on the movement’s devoted exponents – Michael Heizer, Walter De Maria, Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson (whose piece, Spiral Jetty, is probably one of the most celebrated earthworks) – but also its supporting players, including patron and 3M heiress Virginia Dwan. Troublemakers also tackles the disdain some of these figures held for photographic documentation of their work which they believed needed to be experienced to be understood. (Notes by Alice Butler.)
