This conference will explore contemporary site-specific creation, including Land Art, environmental art, public art, and performance, focusing on the analysis of the sensory, intellectual, and aesthetic perception of the work outside of the museum walls, and the study of contextualized / conceptualized forms and their modes of representation. 'Avignon Locators', a site-specific work by American land artist Nancy Holt, will be dedicated during the event. Commissioned by the University of Avignon, the sculpture reactivates 'Missoula Ranch Locators – Vision Encompassed', one of the artist's major works built in Montana in 1972 and dismantled 30 years later. The creation of the work in the campus garden, within the city walls, will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the original creation.
