the gallery

Azimuth_scroll_sm copyIdeas about land & environment can flourish everywhere, not excluding places with walls. Wild & built environments may seem oppositional, but the conditions of their coexistence are at the core of twenty-first-century land-based art.

Opened in 2008, THE LAND/gallery functions as an urban, indoor branch of the Manzano Mountain site—a contrasting environment designed to enrich & expand artists’ site projects & provide an additional or alternative space for further exploration & dialog. Because new land-based art often explores ideas about the environment through digital & other technologies, THE LAND/gallery is also important as a venue for work that relies on “indoor” media.

The gallery’s location in downtown Albuquerque increases opportunities for community interaction & involvement, & makes it a convenient point of entry for artists & others who want to know more about THE LAND/an art site.

    Hello, I am a MFA Candidate at the University of New Mexico, and would love to submit an exhibition proposal. I am searching for a venue for my thesis exhibition in the fall of 2016, and I feel that THE LAND/gallery could be a perfect fit. My work explores weather phenomena in Oklahoma and its relation to the culture and landscape within the state. My most recent piece, the Weathering Oklahoma project, has recently been covered in a newscast during a weather special, here is the link to it:
    This project, among other related pieces involving soil castings, fulgurite, and steel depictions of tornadic storm systems would be included in this exhibition. If possible, I would love to send images, as well as a proposal to THE LAND/gallery for your review, in hopes of an exhibition.
