Lucy Lippard, Overlay. Contemporary Art and the Art of Prehistory, The New Press, 1983

From the megalithic monuments of Stonehenge to Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty in the Great Salt Lake, from the matriarchal fertility rituals of the ancient Celts to Judy Chicago's Dinner Party, Overlay illuminates the converging interests of artists thousands of years ago and artists today. Leaving galleries to stage rituals in city streets, learning astronomy as well as anatomy, exchanging paint-brushed for bulldozers, recent artists are breaking down the barriers that isolate the art world and are looking back to times and places where art was inseparable from life.
