Amy Dempsey is an art historian who studied under Rosalind Krauss at Hunter College in New York and received her doctorate from the Courtauld Institute of Art in London. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, Dempsey has contributed to a number of museum catalogues, and is the author of Styles, Schools and Movements (2002), the groundbreaking Destination Art (2006) and two titles in the Art Essentials series: Modern Art (2018) and Surrealism (2019), all published by Thames & Hudson.


An affordable, accessible introduction to artworks in the global landscape, including land art, site-specific art and sculpture parks.

Manifesting in a broad range of media, from massive land and environmental works and extensive sculpture parks to giant public murals, 'destination art' demands to be found and met in its own space and on its own terms. Some works require a committed pilgrimage to find in deserts, forests, and quarries, on farmland and in mountains, in ghost towns and nature reserves. Others might be hidden gems in urban environments. What unites them in every instance is an artistic symbiosis between the installation and its setting.

Through the eyes of renowned art historian Amy Dempsey, the magic of public art comes alive and while the art is undoubtedly important, the journey there is often equally so. Perfect both for armchair adventurers and keen globetrotters, Destination Art offers a clear way in to a vast subject. From the vibrant Rainbow Village in Taiwan and the Rock Garden of Chandigarh, to Antony Gormley's Inside Australia at Lake Ballard, Dempsey expertly guides readers through the most exciting and significant destination artworks in the world. Each featured installation is accompanied by a short essay, stunning photographs and useful information on key works and where to find them.
