Essays by a diverse and distinguished group of contributors–including Pamela M. Lee, Lucy R. Lippard, Ines Schaber, and Matthew Coolidge–chart Holts artistic trajectory from her initial exploration of sound, light, and industrial materials to major site interventions and environmental sculpture. James Meyers valuable interview with Holt and Julia Aldersons illustrated chronology expand our knowledge of this groundbreaking artist and the crucial contexts in which she worked. More than twenty-five original writings by the artist and a rare selection of her concrete poetry, documentary photographs, and preparatory drawings reveal Holt’s concepts of space, time, optics, and scale.
