"Groundswell: Women of Land Art" features 12 artists involved in the land art movement, including Lita Albuquerque; Alice Aycock; Beverly Buchanan; Agnes Denes; Maren Hassinger; Nancy Holt; Patricia Johanson; Ana Mendieta; Mary Miss; Jody Pinto; Michelle Stuart; and Meg Webster.

For many years, art historical narratives of land art have been dominated by men. "Groundswell" intends to shift that focus to shed new light on the vast number of land works by women artists, whose careers ran parallel to their better-known male counterparts, yet have received less recognition and representation in museum presentations.

Installations, sculpture, documentation of site-specific works and performances, proposals, and drawings will be installed throughout the museum. The exhibition will include notable works reimagined for the Nasher, such as Maren Hassinger’s "Blanket of Branches" (1986), Nancy Holt’s "Pipeline" (1986), and Ana Mendieta’s "Árbol de Vida" [Tree of Life] (1982). Mary Miss will debut a new work, "Stream Trace: Dallas Branch Crossing," which follows the path of a buried stream passing beneath the Nasher’s garden.
