Ends of the Earth @MOCAlosangeles (***) I really wanted to love this show, as I’ve always been partial to earth work… #EotEMOCA

The significance of land art is undeniable, and the success of this show would be a great way to taunt Broad/Deitch but… #EotEMOCA
6:01 PM – 16 Aug 12

It’s so hard to get the emotional impact the real thing has/had with a lot of crude documentary photography and video. #EotEMOCA
6:03 PM – 16 Aug 12

The actual sculptures and installations like the Harrison’s Hog Pasture or Aycock’s, Clay #2 held the most potency. #EotEMOCA
6:04 PM – 16 Aug 12

But they were too few among the surrogate documentation which overwhelmed the space. #EotEMOCA

A lot of stuff was out there with no context, narration, description, nada. #EotEMOCA
6:14 PM – 16 Aug 12
