Shit That I Come Across in New York

manpodcast:

The second segment of this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist and organizer Mary Miss.

Miss is the founder of City as Living Laboratory, an organization that provides a platform for artists, scientists, planners, policy makers and the general public to be more environmentally aware. In conjunction with Marfa Dialogues St. Louis, a program of the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, Miss will be leading a walk through central Saint Louis on August 2. Marfa Dialogues St. Louis events run from July 30 through August 3. 

This post features an earthwork Miss created in 1975. She and host Tyler Green discussed it on this week’s program. The first three images here are drawings Miss created of the work. They are followed by the untitled piece as it is installed on the grounds of the Allen Memorial Art Museum at Oberlin College in Ohio. The drawings and the work are all in AMAM’s collection. The bottom image is a Google Satellite picture that shows where the work is installed.
