Item description for Down the Garden Path: The Artist's Garden After Modernism by Valerie Smith, Domenick Ammirati & Jennifer Liese...
An international array of artists including Isamu Noguchi, Jenny Holzer and Vito Acconci have been using the garden as a vehicle for commentary on social and political issues, in both public and private realms. The lush Down the Garden Path offers a critical history of their and other artists' garden work from the 1940s to the present, and verdant examples in categories including paradise; the memorial; private and public gardens; and ecologies, their alternatives and Schreber gardens. Among pieces that readers won't likely see elsewhere are Paula Hayes's Plantpack 2000, a miniature garden in a Snugli, and five newly commissioned gardens for Queens. With essays by Jamaica Kincaid among others.
