Robert Smithson and Gordon Matta-Clark are revived from the dead and ejected from their makeshift mausoleums. In New Jersey, they debate their artistic positions with the ‘non-actors’ they encounter at the sites of their work. In keeping with much of the science fiction writing that inspired Robert Smithson and his colleagues, ]]>Monuments]]> is a voyage to the Lost World of New Jersey. Like 19th century adventurers, these artists reacted to the crisis in modernism by seeking out material at the margins.
