Liza Lou: Color Field and Solid Grey
November 8, 2015 – February 21, 2016
 
Liza Lou challenges traditional definitions of painting, sculpture, and craft in her dazzling installations made entirely of glass beads. Color Field, the artist’s largest sculpture to date, is an abstract work measuring approximately 1,400 square feet that will carpet nearly the entire floor of the Neuberger Museum of Art’s largest gallery in a shimmering field of color. The sculpture, made up of thousands of stainless steel wires sheathed in over two million tiny glass beads, is arranged in a grid of brilliant colored squares. Lou originally created Color Field in Durban, South Africa, where she lived from 2005-2014, working with a team of nearly 30 Zulu women artisans. This monumental work will be re-created on site at the Neuberger Museum under the artist’s direction. The exhibition also includes Lou’s Solid Gray and Color/White canvases, a series of monochromatic woven beaded works in various hues.
