  • 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.

Marcie Begleiter: 2004-05 Faculty Development Grant Report

 

Eva Hesse ephemera - diary page
Page from Eva Hesse's Diary (1977.52.58.13A-B)

Report:

I traveled to Oberlin, Ohio to review documents from the Eva Hesse Archives at Oberlin College's Allen Art Museum. While in residence for 5 days during the end of June I read and photographed hundreds of documents that were created and owned by Hesse during her short life. I am at work on a full length play that is inspired by her life and times.

The trip allowed me the access to a trove of unpublished materials and the time to read a portion of the thousands of pages of diaries, letters and other ephemera that Oberlin has in trust for the Hesse estate. This research has been invaluable to my understanding of both Hesse's private as well as public life and is being utilized in the writing of stage play that is loosely based on events from her life and the New York art scene of the 1960's.
