The Nevada Museum of Art in Reno has acquired Judy Chicago’s full “fireworks” archive with the ambition to reinvestigate the historically male-dominated Land Art movement of the mid-20th century. The archive contains thousands of photographs, digital images, films, drawings and other materials related to the artist-activist’s site-specific works involving coloured smoke and fireworks from 1967 to the present, in which Chicago sought to “feminise” the environment.

“As the museum evolves, we aim to acquire archival materials that help tell a more complete story of Land Art, one that is not dominated by a single—white, straight and male—perspective,” says Joanne Northrup, the museum’s curatorial director and curator of contemporary art.
