This book serves as a fresh perspective on Walter De Maria’s The Lightning Field (1977)—one of the most important early examples of Land Art. Kathleen Shields presided as its administrator for 30 years, and her writings shine new light on what it means to experience art like this in a turbulent contemporary context.
