Uncommon Ground

I thoroughly recommend the exhibition Uncommon Ground: Land Art in Britain 1966-1979 now on at Southampton City Art Gallery.  I think it captures the attitude to landscape and ecological concern which characterises British Land Art of this period.  It features a wide selection of artists, not just Long and Goldsworthy, and even includes Barry Flanagan and Antony Gormley.  Combining this exhibition with a visit to the Hansard Gallery for an exhibition about Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson on their 1969 visit to Britain, provides a complementary demonstration of the American version of land art. These exhibitions are not to be missed if you have any interest in what we are doing to the world
