  • For decades, the Los Angeles–based artist Lita Albuquerque has blurred distinctions between Land art and Light and Space on increasingly grander scales, whether it be building installations surrounding the pyramids in Egypt or placing sculptures across Antarctica to mirror the formation of the stars. Her cosmic explorations continue with two new bodies of work that are currently being shown at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood, from January 9 through February 27, 2016, and at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, from January 26 through April 10, 2016.

S.A. Bachman
Senior Lecturer
Education: 

MFA Tyler School of Art

BFA Arizona State Univ.

Bio/Affiliation: 

Socially engaged artist, educator and Co-founder of the THINK AGAIN collaborative. Bachman’s photo-text works manipulate popular media representations to reveal conformity, hegemony and sexism. THINK AGAIN recruits art in the service of public address and expects something political from art. Utilizing billboards, projections and interventions, they seek to prompt the political imagination, challenge indifference and dissolve the boundary between critique and action. Recent work interrogates: the criminalization of undocumented workers; queer memory; political brutality; and the correspondence between militarism and rape. THINK AGAIN has gift-distributed tens of thousands of posters, postcards and books worldwide. Exhibits: Museu d´Art Contemporani de Barcelona (Spain), Institute Contemporary Art (Boston, Philadelphia,) and Alternative Museum (NY). Awards: National Endowment for the Arts, Massachusetts Cultural Council and LEF Foundation. Publications: Artforum, Social TextReframings: New Feminist PhotographiesGraphic Agitation 2 and A Brief History of Outrage: THINK AGAIN.
