L&M Arts: Liza Lou March 26 – May 7, 2011

L&M Arts proudly presents the first exhibition by Los Angeles artist Liza Lou in her home city, since her solo exhibition at the Santa Monica Museum of Art in 1998.

L&M Arts: Liza Lou

For the past six years, Liza Lou has maintained a studio in Durban, South Africa where she works with Zulu artisans whose families have worked with beads for generations. While Lou does not borrow from the tradition of African beadwork, this new body of work reflects her travels, meditating upon process, the impossibility of perfection, and what Lou terms “the culpability of craft.”

Liza Lou was born in New York City in 1969 and has lived in Los Angeles since 1990. She has had numerous solo exhibitions, including the Stiftung museum Kunst palast, Düsseldorf; Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona; Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Oslo; White Cube, London; Aspen Art Museum, and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Group shows include Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Serpentine, London; Biennale d’art Contemporain de Lyon, and Taipei Biennale, among many others. The Dakis Joannou Collection, Cleveland Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Fondation Cartier, the Olbricht Collection, the François Pinault Foundation, and Brant Foundation are but a few of the international collections that own her work. In 2002, she was awarded a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship.

A fully illustrated catalogue with texts by Francine Prose and Michael Duncan will be published to accompany the exhibition.

Rizzoli will publish a comprehensive monograph on the work of Liza Lou in March 2011.

We invite you to view the exhibition on our website.
