When the Earth is Your Canvas: ‘Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art’

Nowness takes a look at a new documentary about a unique subject. Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art, from curator, filmmaker and writer James Crump, concerns three artists — Michael Heizer, Robert Smithson and Walter De Maria — whose take up massive space in deserts and salt lakes of the Southwest. 

Says Crump, “‘When our crew made two helicopter shoots of the site and we wrapped up the day’s work, it was like saying goodbye to a living, breathing entity.'”
