More and more art is to be found beyond the gallery or outside the confines of the museum. Destination Art provides a highly accessible chronological survey of the world’s most important large-scale and public works of 20th and 21st century art.
The book features more than two hundred destinations, including a detailed look at fifty-four key sites with accounts of their histories and numerous spectacular photographs. Encompassing massive land and environmental works, extensive sculpture parks, magnificent architectural follies, site-specific installations, even whole towns turned over to the display of art, Destination Art chronicles a wealth of works that have achieved near-mythical status since they were created.
Among the many influential and popular artists included are Henri Matisse, Antoni Gaudí, Constantin Brancusi, James Turrell, Richard Serra, Robert Smithson, Antony Gormley and Olafur Eliasson.
Full visitor information – including opening hours and admission fees, how to get there, contact details and websites, and further reading – is supplied for each of the destinations.
