Art & Place is an extraordinary collection of site–specific art in the Americas. Featuring hundreds of powerful art works in 60 cities – from Albuquerque to Boston and Baja to Rio de Janeiro – the book is both an informative guide and a virtual bucket list of outstanding art destinations.
Conceived and developed by Phaidon editors, Art & Place covers carving, painting, murals, frescos, earthworks, land art, and more. Each of the works has a dedicated entry pairing gorgeous, large‐format images with in‐depth descriptions. Maps pinpoint the sites’ locations while specially commissioned plans reveal some of the more complex layouts. The book is organized geographically, offering fresh juxtapositions among familiar art works, such as Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate and Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty, alongside lesser-known revelations, such as Inhotim Centro de Arte Contemporânea in Brazil. Whether in the mountains, at the heart of a city, or on a remote island, the works in Art & Place are all inextricably linked with their environment. This is art to experience in an immersive way, presented together in a single book for the first time."

"Art & Place collects . . . destination art worth the trip." – Newsweek/The Daily Beast
"This highly chromatic and eclectic visual compendium of site-specific art in the Americas, from pre-Colombian to present day and from Canada to Chile, showcases virtually every form of artistic endeavor imaginable." – ELLE
"The most ambitious summary of site‐specific art in the western hemisphere to date. Large‐scale photographs allow for an immersive experience of these faraway, sometimes inaccessible sites, while the pithy commentary is highly informative. . . A striking achievement." – Publishers Weekly
"The 500 or so works in Art & Place, a coffee table book so hefty that it's practically site‐specific itself, are here to remind you that the term applies across centuries. Among the sculptures, murals, earthworks, and architectural carvings in this enjoyable page-turner of a book, the Easter Island heads coexist with a Picasso, and Donald Judd’s boxes are never far from a Toltec pyramid." – TIME
"Some people tour the best roadside food in the country. Others plot their course from baseball stadium to baseball stadium. But, what if you set out on a road trip to see some of the most famous examples of site‐specific art? Let Art & Place, a new book featuring 170 awe‐inspiring artworks in more than 60 cities. . . be your guide." – Smithsonian Magazine
"Museums don’t have a lock on the public art market – great works are also housed in churches, plazas, and desert canyons. Art and Place details site‐specific art across North and South America, including ancient painted caves in Mexico’s Baja California and a house full of Dan Flavin’s fluorescent light sculptures in Bridgehampton, N.Y. The book is organized by country, which makes it useful for exploring future destinations or seeing what you might be missing close to home." – The Wall Street Journal
"An art pilgrim's bucket list." – The New York Times
"A valuable guide." – USA Today
"Art that surrounds us in our cities and in nature, from New York to Rio de Janeiro. In these mesmerizing images, we can’t forget that art makes us belong to the spaces that surround us." – Yves Behar"
