Site-specific art is artwork created to exist in a certain place. Typically, the artist takes the location into account while planning and creating the artwork.
Outdoor site-specific artworks often include landscaping combined with permanently sited sculptural elements (the movement is linked with Environmental art). Indoor site-specific artworks may be created in conjunction with (or indeed by) the architects of the building.
More broadly, the term is sometimes used for any work that is (more or less) permanently attached to a particular location. In this sense, a building with interesting architecture could be considered a piece of site-specific art. Artists producing site-specific works include Robert Smithson, Andy Goldsworthy, Christo, Richard Serra, Yumi Kori, Brandon LaBelle, Guillaume Bijl, Christian Bernard Singer, Betty Beaumont and younger artists like Mark Divo, John K. Melvin, Lennie Lee, Luna Nera, Wrights & Sites, Sarah Sze, Seth Wulsin, Ben Cummins and Simparch.
