City

October 28th, 2005 · No Comments

“As long as you’re going to make a sculpture,why not make one that competes with a 747, orthe Empire State Building, or the Golden Gate Bridge.” – Michael Heizer

“City, Michael Heizer’s life-long project, is quite possibly the largest piece of contemporary art ever attempted. Because the artist is a very private individual, little is known about City, except that he has been working on it since 1972 (he claims 1970). Located in the remote desert of Nevada, City comprises five phases, each consisting of a number of structures referred to as complexes.”
