Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0714865516, Hardcover)Art & Place is an extraordinary collection of site-specific art in the Americas. Featuring hundreds of powerful art works in 60 cities - from Albuquerque to Boston and Baja to Rio de Janeiro - the book is both an informative guide and a virtual bucket list of outstanding art destinations.
Conceived and developed by Phaidon editors, Art & Place covers carving, painting, murals, frescos, earthworks, land art, and more. Each of the works has a dedicated entry pairing gorgeous, large-format images with in-depth descriptions. Maps pinpoint the sites' locations while specially commissioned plans reveal some of the more complex layouts. The book is organized geographically, offering fresh juxtapositions among familiar art works, such as Anish Kapoor's Cloud Gate and Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty, alongside lesser-known revelations, such as Inhotim Centro de Arte Contempor├ónea in Brazil. Whether in the mountains, at the heart of a city, or on a remote island, the works in Art & Place are all inextricably linked with their environment. This is art to experience in an immersive way, presented together in a single book for the first time.

"Over 500 artworks from all periods, arranged geographically across fifteen countries that span the Americas, from Canada to Argentina, have been specially selected by a panel of experts. Every work examined in this extraordinary book remains permanently in situ, creatively integrated with its specific environment. An enormous variety of schools and styles can be compared, as well as a wealth of different techniques and media, from cave paintings and contemporary sculpture to murals, stained glass, reliefs and land art"--Site web de l'Úditeur.
