Michael Heizer: Altars
Kara Vander Weg takes us through the artist’s 2015 Altars exhibition.
In 2012, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art debuted Levitated Mass by Michael Heizer. How it got there was a work of art in itself, and the topic of a documentary by Doug Pray. Derek Blasberg caught up with Pray to talk about his film.
