Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art (2015)


James Crump’s fascinating documentary tells the story of a handful of artists who escaped the gallery scene in mid-Sixties NYC and made earthworks in the Southwest. It’s a tale of obsession, excavation, ritual and single-mindedness with the standout bio that of Robert Smithson who practically made his life a sacrifice for art by dying in an air crash while scouting his new Texas location in 1973. This is a great tribute to monumental vision. Produced by Ronnie Sassoon.
