Bill Gilbert

Bill Gilbert sends word (via the Land Arts Listserv) that he'll be a guest on KUNM's June 26 call-in show (8a.m.-9 a.m. MST). Bill holds the Lannan Chair in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of New Mexico, founder of the Land Arts of the American West program and a curator of New Mexico's LAND/ART, a collaborative exploration of land art in New Mexico. During the show, you can give Bill a call with a question about land art: 505-277-5866 or toll-free 877-899-5866.

Arcie Chapa talk with Bill about Land Art, a form of art which came to prominence in the late 1960's, primarily as a protest against the ruthless commercialization of art in America. Materials such as rocks, sticks, soil and plants are often used and the works exists in the open and are left to change and erode under natural conditions. Beginning this summer and continuing through the fall a group of New Mexico arts organizations have joined together to present, LAND/ART New Mexico, which will explore relationships of land, art and community through exhibitions and lectures.
