Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson transformed the world of art and ideas. Holt/Smithson Foundation develops their distinctive creative legacies.

Holt and Smithson recalibrated the limits of art, changing what art can be and where art can be found. Their art, writings, and ideas built the ground from which contemporary art has grown. 

Our ambition is to become the hub of all things Holt and Smithson.

Collaborating with artists, writers, thinkers, and institutions we realize exhibitions, publish books, initiate artist commissions, program educational events, encourage research, and develop collections globally from our headquarters in New Mexico.

Holt/Smithson Foundation was willed into being by Nancy Holt in 2014. We plan to terminate in 2038, a century after Nancy Holt (1938-2014) and Robert Smithson (1938-1973) were born.
