The union of the disciplines of landscape design and environmental installation has created a new hybrid of art and design. Revelatory Landscapes documents four Bay Area–based, site-specific installations commissioned by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. With the common theme of exploring and revealing the “edge of the urban scene,” these projects — temporary and experimental in nature — suggest the boundaries and spaces created by the emotional, socioeconomic, and cultural threads in the sub/urban fabric. The four projects are by: Kathryn Gustafson, Jaimi Baer, and Conger Moss Guillard Landscape Architecture; Hargreaves Associates in collaboration with Julian Lang; Hood Design in collaboration with Olly Wilson and Douglas Hollis; and Tom Leader Studio in collaboration with Anuradha Mathur and Dilip da Cunha.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Revelatory Landscapes, held at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and outdoor sites around the San Francisco Bay Area (May 5–October 14, 2001)
