Early Work, 1967 – 1979
Editor's note: The exhibition at Ortuzar Projects concludes on December 5, 2020.
Lynda Benglis has spent more than five decades exploring the possibilities within her sprawling sculptural “pours,” for which she literally pours liquid latex and polyurethane over removable scaffolding-like structures, resulting in seemingly gravity-defying, organically formed shapes.
This fall, Cheim & Read and Ortuzar Projects jointly present “Lynda Benglis: Early Work, 1967 – 1979.” Across three spaces, the exhibition showcases significant experimental forays conducted by the artist early in her career, specifically during the late 1960s through the 1970s, when she was initially becoming situated in New York City’s art world.
