Through Champ we are proud to be bringing this pivotal film to London screens, telling the story of land art which has surprisingly not yet been told in such a specific way and with the film set and shot in the captivating, desolate desert spaces of the American southwest.

Troublemakers unearths the history of land art in the late 1960s and early 1970s. At a time of political and social upheaval, the film spotlights a group of renegade New York artists that sought to transcend the limitations of painting and sculpture by producing.earthworks on a monumental scale. Famous works include: Spiral Jetty by Robert Smithson, The Lightening Field by Walter De Maria and Double Negative by Michael Heizer. Using original footage produced with helicopters and rare re-mastered vintage footage from the period, Crump’s cinematic journey takes viewers on a thrill ride through the most significant land art sites in California, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah, an immersive and physically transportive experience.

Featuring: Germano Celant, Walter De Maria, Michael Heizer, Dennis Oppenheim, Robert Smithson, Nancy Holt, Vito Acconci, Virginia Dwan, Charles Ross, Paula Cooper, Willoughby Sharp, Pamela Sharp, Lawrence Weiner, Carl Andre, Gianfranco Gorgoni, Harald Szeemann. 

Followed by an insightful Q&A with Director James Crump (previously Chief Curator at the Cincinnati Art Museum) and Stefan Kálmar (Director of Artists Space, New York).

Each guest this Thursday at ICA receives a copy of Ala Champ Magazine.

You can book online here.
We look forward to seeing you!
