Both, however, are mainly deployed in service of a regime of the found object, suggesting in particular those early conceptual riffs on the form of the photoessay, such as Smithson's "A Tour of the Monuments of Passaic, New Jersey" (1967) and Dan Graham's "Homes for America" (1966)--with which so-called advanced art began the exodus first out of the gallery, then out of New York City as the second "capital of modern art." That era's search for a landscape imprinted with what Donald Judd described as the "look of non-art" may have ended with Smithson's Hotel Palenque, 1969-72, and if images of South American urbanism predominate in "Farsites," it is because these cities retain unto perpetuity the unfinished condition so crucial to these earlier artists.
