Here's a good one, sent in from a reader: A rare site-specific Donald Judd can be found HERE behind the Art Gallery of South Australia in Adelaide - thanks JD.

Apparently quite controversial at the time, Judd swaggered into town in cowboy boots in 1974 to design the work, which was completed in 1975 after he left, never returning to see the final result. If only there was access to online satellite photos then.

In 2004, AGSA commemorated 30 years of having this work in their permanent collection. More details on the work and other public sculpture in Adelaide can be found here.

Art from Space is an exploration of art-related phenomena that manifests in interesting ways on Google’s aerial maps. It is also an experiment in curatorial practice; collecting, presenting and contextualising items in ways that users can explore, free of curator-imposed framing and sequencing. This blog is Art from Space’s developmental musings made public, where items are introduced to the project in real time, rather than awaiting the grand unveiling of a completed exhibition. Specific locations of interest are highlighted in CAPS and linked to a map for further exploration. Visit the mother ship HERE.
