Land Arts of the American West 2016

Land Arts of the American West [LAAW] is an interdisciplinary, field-based studio art program at the University of New Mexico. During the program students travel extensively throughout the Southwest while camping and investigating environmental sites, human habitation systems, and questions facing the region. This year the students - alongside their independent field studies - investigated the theme of Water Rights. This exhibition features work by the artists - created on site, or in response to their experiences whilst out in the field.

With thanks to the Lannan Foundation for their generous contribution
