Woodbridge, New Jersey
The Museum For Land Art is the first institution of its kind for exhibiting Land Art. Because most of the iconic sculptures and activities from the Land Art era of the 1960s and 1970s are installed in remote places, this offers New York museum visitors an opportunity to see land art locally.
The Woodbridge Center Shopping Mall—entirely bounded by highways, and opened in 1971—is contemporaneous with the Land Art Movement and would serve as an incongruous terrain for exhibiting Land Art. Installations would occupy the many surrounding right-of-ways, power line easements, highway interchanges, and unused parking lot areas. In addition, the roof of the mall is available for installation, as a simple land ramp provides easy access to the roof.
