Turner's previous book had global appeal of a different kind: Planet Simpson has been called the "...the definitive Simpsons study." In this new book he's turned his attention to a different topic, but with similar pop culture appeal that should attract a broad audience of readers. As the Globe points out, "...his stories are full of references to his love of driving, cold beer, the Big Lebowski and The Simpsons." And sustainability too! Sounds like a great one to kick off the new year with, huh? As Turner says on his own website, "...a book about hope makes a wonderful Christmas/Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus gift, so act now!"
This "anti-monumental approach to Land-Art" is a collection of works that show concern for the power, agency and increasing responsibility of humankind for the environment. From the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts:
"Are We There Yet?" the child's obnoxious road-trip refrain, is a question/statement that implies a mix of excitement and inherent dissatisfaction with whatever place the parents might be driving to. Kids (...and artists?) are constantly expanding their knowledge of the natural world and raising the bar for future experiences. In short, they are perennially one step away from their own personal "frontier," a place of learning as well as a physical threshold.The show features the work of six artists and runs through February 2 at the EFA Gallery on W. 39th in NYC.
