Representing Nature


Many artists make books to explore alternate ways of communicating ideas and composing images. Representing Nature presents a selection of works from the MCA's collection of artists' books in which artists have drawn upon nature and the landscape as subjects for exploration, subversion, and critique. Video documentation of Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty and Christo's Running Fence are presented along with artists' books by Ed Ruscha, Dick Higgins, John Cage, Bruce Naumann, and Sol LeWitt, among others.
