FROM THE PUBLISHER - This stunningly illustrated book is the first critical guide to the two hundred most important modern and contemporary art sites around the world. Designed for the international art tourist as a key critical reference in an era where more and more art is found outside galleries or museums, Destination Art not only is packed with practical information for the traveler but also provides a highly accessible chronological survey of the world's most important large-scale and public works of twentieth- and twenty-first-century art. Encompassing massive land and environmental works, extensive sculpture parks, magnificent architectural follies, site-specific installations, even whole towns turned over to the display of art, this book chronicles a wealth of works that have achieved near-mythical status since they were created. Among the many influential and popular artists included are Henri Matisse, Antoni Gaudi, Jean Tinguely, Constantin Brancusi, James Turrell, Richard Serra, Robert Smithson, and Antony Gormley. The book includes full visitor information, with hours and admissions fees, directions, contact details and websites, and further reading. Fifty key art destinations are featured in substantial essays, with accounts of their histories, descriptions of their sites, and spectacular photography. With destinations from around the world and special emphasis on Europe and the United States, this volume signals the coming of age of site-specific art and will inspire visitors from around the globe and armchair enthusiasts alike.
