About this topic: Land/Landscape

This topic looks at women artists who have intervened in "landscape" as a tradition and challenged its premises. This includes the work of women artists identified with the land art movement in the USA and as public artists producing large-scale projects for particular spaces, building (even virtual) gardens, new parks. It also includes works where protests about land rights of indigenous peoples are key. In land art/landscape what can be "seen", literally how a site or vision of the world is presented to us, and the point of view given by the artist to the audience are important ideas to consider.
