Lydia Benglis: Early Work, 1967–1979
October 8, 2020 - December 3, 2020
Ortuzar Projects: 9 White Street, New York, NY 10013; Cheim & Read: 23 East 67th Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10065; Ortuzar Viewing Room, 23 East 67th Street, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10065

Across three spaces in uptown and downtown Manhattan, this major exhibition spotlights the artist’s first decade in the city, in which she created sparkle and metallized knot sculptures, lozenge-shaped wax paintings, and a selection of gilded wall sculptures inspired by Greek caryatids. Taken as a whole, these bodies of work portray Benglis’s radical experiments with materials and formidable influence on contemporary sculpture, working at the forefront of post-Minimalism alongside peers Eva Hesse and Bruce Nauman.
