‘A Stake in the Mud, A Hole in the Reel. Land Art's Expanded Field 1968–2008', April–October 2008

Borrowing its title from the writings of Robert Smithson, this film and video programme revisited a selection of moving-image works that form part of the historical memory of Land Art, through and alongside more recent productions by contemporary artists. It was developed following an invitation to curate the spring 2008 Panorámica video cycle for the Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City [19°28' N, 99°09' W].

The programme grew out of Latitudes' editorial work on 'LAND, ART: A Cultural Ecology Handbook' (2006), in looking at the legacy of Land Art in relation with contemporary practice and social and environmental ecology.
