The talk will discuss the artists and the works shown at The Usher Gallery in terms of British and international sculpture and the Land Art movement.

Recent publications include “Land Art and the Moon Landing,” published in the Journal of Visual Culture in 2009 and a chapter, “From Land Art to the Anthropocene,” in the catalogue for the exhibition Modern British Sculpture at the Royal Academy of Arts London in 2011.
