Destination Art (Art Essentials)
Discover some of the world’s most inspiring artworks – each unique to its place and setting, and creating a destination in its own right.
The journey to the sites is often part of the thrill, with many artworks to be found in deserts, forests, rivers and seas, on farmland and mountains, and in ghost towns, nature reserves, former industrial sites, quarries and monasteries. Others may be hidden gems in cities or artists’ backyards.
From Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty in Utah’s Great Salt Lake to Nek Chand’s Rock Garden in Chandigarh, India, and Antony Gormley’s Inside Australia at Lake Ballard, Amy Dempsey expertly guides readers through the most exciting Destination artworks in the world. This book includes stunning photographs accompanied by lively text, a chronology, a map and information on key works and where to find them.
Small, smart, essential
For all those who enjoy art and want to find out more, Art Essentials are the perfect companions to give you all the background knowledge you need for your enjoyment and understanding, whether you're an avid gallery-goer, an armchair enthusiast or a curious observer.
