Thirty years after his untimely death, Robert Smithson (1938–1973) remains one of the most influential artists of his generation. His complex ideas took root in many forms, including drawings, projects, proposals, sculpture, earthworks, films, and critical writings. Although made in a brief span from the mid-sixties to the early seventies, Smithson's provocative works redefined the language of sculpture.
