Nancy Holt (1938-2014) was a key member of the Earth, Land and Conceptual art movements and a pioneer of both site-specific installation and film and video work. Holt is best known for her iconic work Sun Tunnels (1973-6) located in the Great Basin Desert, Utah, but worked in many media, including concrete poetry, audiotapes, videos, photographs, site-specific installations, artist’s books, and major public sculpture commissions.

In 2013 Nancy Holt was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the International Sculpture Center in New York.
