Nancy Holt: Locators


Published on the occasion of Parafin's important 2015 exhibition of Holt's rarely seen Locator sculptures.


This seminal body of work, which Holt inaugurated in the early 1970s, has been very rarely seen. Nonetheless, within her oeuvre the ‘Locators’ are crucially important. The innovations and experimentation that they embody lead directly to Holt’s iconic Land Art work, Sun Tunnels (1973-76) and inform many of her groundbreaking public commissions of the 1980s and 90s.


Doug Dreishpoon's newly commissioned essay considers the background to the development of these works and the period in which they were created.
