Dennis Oppenheim (1938-2011) was one of the most important American conceptual artists of the 1960s and 1970s. At the forefront of the land and earth art movements, Oppenheim first became known for simply designating parts of the urban landscape as artworks and for his temporary outdoor sculptures. In the late 1960s he was creating works by drawing on ice, ploughing fields, creating trails in the snow, among many other environmental interventions, and he would use photography and cinematographic film to preserve a record of these works. For the PROJECTS portfolio, Oppenheim brought together photos, maps and documents to recount conceptual Land Art works created between the years 1968 to 1972.
