The New Museum in New York City is presenting “Lynda Benglis,” an exhibition showcasing four decades of work by artist and BFA Fine Arts Department faculty member Lynda Benglis. The retrospective collects sculpture works in a variety of media, including poured latex, bronze casts, glow-in-the-dark polyurethane and other materials. According to the museum, “Rejecting the formalist influences of modernism, Benglis takes painting off the wall and brings color back into sculpture; she captures sensual experience and creates a visceral tie between the viewer and her biomorphic figures.”
“Lynda Benglis” is on view at the New Museum, 235 Bowery, February 9 – June 19. For more information, visit newmuseum.org.
