Abstract (English)

"Gary Shapiro examines the full range of Smithson's virtuosity from his best known works, including Spiral Jetty and Partially Buried Woodshed, to his photographs, films, and theoretical writings. His book contextualizes Smithson's career within the critical and philosophical legacy of American art of the 1960s." - Dust jacket.
