Lippard’s timely book extends beyond the discourse of art history and cultural geography. It is a call for action.

Lippard’s timely book extends beyond the discourse of art history and cultural geography. She guides us on a tour of the American West that is being ravaged by oil and gas interests, damaging both the environment and our collective psyche. Her critique and the numerous artists that she weaves into her narrative visualizes the destruction, as well as presenting alternatives that could direct land use toward a more just and sustainable future. As Lucy Lippard shows in her brilliantly hybrid book, it is also true of the subterranean spaces where these toxins are often stored and, in many cases, blasted, excavated, generated, and buried.

Award-winning author, curator, and activist Lucy R. Lippard is one of America’s most influential writers on contemporary art, a pioneer in the fields of cultural geography, conceptualism, and feminist art.

Lucy Lippard’s Undermining is a brilliant weaving together of the politics of land use in the West and the interventions made by artists into this landscape. Encompassing ancient petroglyphs, the land art of the 1970s, and more recent socially engaged art, and juxtaposing that art with the super-exploitation of the region’s natural resources, Lippard creates a compelling vision of an entire ecosystem under threat.

Award-winning author, curator, and activist Lucy R. Lippard is one of America’s most influential writers on contemporary art, a pioneer in the fields of cultural geography, conceptualism, and feminist art. Hailed for "the breadth of her reading and the comprehensiveness with which she considers the things that define place" (The New York Times), Lippard now turns her keen eye to the politics of land use and art in an evolving New West. Working from her own lived experience in a New Mexico village and inspired by gravel pits in the landscape, Lippard weaves a number of fascinating themes—among them fracking, mining, land art, adobe buildings, ruins, Indian land rights, the Old West, tourism, photography, and water—into a tapestry that illuminates the relationship between culture and the land. From threatened Native American sacred sites to the history of uranium mining, she offers a skeptical examination of the "subterranean economy." Featuring more than two hundred gorgeous color images, Undermining is a must-read for anyone eager to explore a new way of understanding the relationship between art and place in a rapidly shifting society.

I like the small size of this edition, also good for The New Press with decent color photos and paper quality.
  • Nicanagy
An excellent, concise and informative book.

Lucy Lippard is in touch with the universe and shares the relevant facts of life for this day and age. Activism is alive and well but of course it's easy to see who's winning. I'm blown away by how much territory Undermining covers, sweeping over the landscape we all know and love. Lippard articulates the web of connections that profoundly describe what nature has become, and how humans continue to plunder the future of the planet. The images that support the text are great, and she includes the facts that matter but they don't bog you down. It's an important document of now.
"Pessimism of the intellect and optimism of the will"-that's it in a nutshell. Of course, there's no giving up.
  • Dalallador
Another thought-provoking book by Lucy Lippard, a most original thinker and art critic. She establishes a dialog between the appalling facts of land (ab)use in America and the way many artists have addressed those issues. Along the way the reader is taken from gravel pits in the mythologized Great American West all the way to the Ground Zero 9-11 memorial in New York City. It may seem like the "wild ride" of the title, but the author holds firmly your hand (and your mind) through it. Thoroughly enjoyable -- and you'll learn a lot of new things as well.
