Críticas

Praise for "The Lure of the Local"
"Lippard overwhelms us with the breadth of her reading and comprehensiveness with which she considers the things that define place."
--"The New York Times"

"Interesting and thoughtful. . . . Her critiques are often delightfully acidic. . . . A solid contribution to popular geography."
--"Kirkus"

"An excellent reference guide to recent and historical place-oriented art and activism."
--"Preservation"

Praise for "Mixed Blessings"
"Lucy Lippard's intellectual devotion to the power of women and persons of color enacted and idealized within their works of visual art has brought her to level of discourse that is rich in democratic possibility and promise. I love this book, in short, and recommend it highly."
--Robert Farris Thompson, professor of African and African American art history, Yale University

Praise for "Undermining"
"This is a marvelous slim book full of dirt: the literal dirt and gravel and other materials of the earth, and the unseen, unsung source in that earth of all the building materials of the cities, the cement and concrete, the uranium and oil. Lucy Lippard weaves, as only she can, ideas, facts, images, and histories into a whole about the rawness of raw materials and the ecology of the manmade world."
--Rebecca Solnit
"Lippard weaves a complex narrative that moves through the slow processes of ecology to the blitzkrieg of development and extraction. Thoughtful, poetic, and unflinchingly critical, she also presents a way to consider the value of art in the collaborative fight for a sustainable future."
--Nato Thompson, chief curator, Creative Time
"This is an intensely personal narrative of degraded ecosystems, exhausted lands, and dispirited peoples. Readers will be captivated by Lippard's gut-wrenching identification with, and her eloquent elucidation of, accumulating hazards and diminishing resources."
--Linda Weintraub, author of "To Life!: Eco Art in Pursuit of a Sustainable Planet" and "Art on the Edge and Over"
"Lippard's timely book extends beyond the discourse of art history and cultural geography. It is a call for action. 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."
--Nicolas Lampert, author of "A People's Art History of the United States"
"Investigating both the 'undermining' of environmental sustainability by capitalist industry and the critical 'undermining' of normative approaches to nature by artists, Lucy Lippard offers an insightful model of how to live locally with ecological c

"[A] brilliant and penetrating fantasia on land use and exploitation. . .This singular book will stir the 'creative energies' of veteran Lippard fans and environmentalists as well as a new generation of artist-activists."
-- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

--Nicolas Lampert, author of A People's Art History of the United States

"Investigating both the 'undermining' of environmental sustainability by capitalist industry and the critical 'undermining' of normative approaches to nature by artists, Lucy Lippard offers an insightful model of how to live locally with ecological consciousness, doing so without surrendering to a narrow parochialism or losing sight of social justice imperatives."
--T.J. Demos, reader, department of art history, University College London

"What you don't know can hurt you. This is true not just in the case of the slow violence through which various forms of environmental toxins seep into our bones and blood. 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. Surveying the land beneath that most iconic of American landscapes, the Southwest, Lippard traces the links between the gravel mined for roads, the coal mined for electricity, and the uranium mined for nuclear weapons in the region, just to name a few of the connections she makes. Lippard brings these hidden economies to light, describes the fight of groups such as the Zuni against the despoliation of the land, and presents striking examples of land use art that is helping to galvanize public opinion against the undermining of the West."
--Ashley Dawson, professor of English, CUNY Graduate Center

Reseña del editor

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.
