Providence Productions International, a non-profit founded in 1978 to support the work of experimental art in all disciplines, received a grant in support of the publication Nancy Holt: Sightlines. This is the first monograph on the important postwar artist Nancy Holt (b. 1938), whose far-reaching body of work from the late 1960s to the present includes land art, films, videos, installations and major sculpture commissions. Edited by curator Alena Williams, the book includes essays by Lucy Lippard, Matthew Coolidge, Pamela M. Lee, Julie Alderson, and James Meyer.
The 256-page, full color catalogue is co-published with the University of California Press and was presented in conjunction with the opening of the first international touring exhibition of Nancy Holt, organized by Columbia University for the fall of 2010.
