Artist Mark Brest van Kempen discusses the influence of Land Art in his work, which uses the landscape itself as sculptural material. From the Free Speech Monument on the University of California-Berkeley campus to Land Exchange at the National Academy of Art in China, his work explores our complex relationship to the environment. Van Kempen has received numerous commissions for permanent public art projects including the San Francisco Art Commission, the City of Palo Alto, the City of Seattle, and the Haas Foundation, and he was recently invited by the German government to submit designs for a national reunification monument in Leipzig. This program is part of the UMFA's ongoing series ARTLandish: Land Art, Landscape, and the Environment, co-sponsored by the College of Fine Arts and the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah and the Salt Lake City Public Library. Visit umfa.utah.edu/artlandish for information.
