Kohn Gallery Adds Lita Albuquerque to Stable
LA’s Kohn Gallery has just announced that it has added artist Lita Albuquerque to its roster. Best known for her work in the Light and Space and Land Art movements, Albuquerque has most recently shown at the Sixth International Cairo Biennale (where she took the top prize) and the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time festival. The gallery is slated to give her a solo show on November 15, the subject of which will be Alburquerque’s ambitious “Stellar Axis: Antarctica” project from 2006. The land art piece, which took the form of 99 blue spheres laid out across the South Pole to mirror the night sky above, was the first large-scale work made in Antarctica. Kohn will display photographs, film, objects and archive materials from the piece.
