The Artist’s Studio

events/logo_laaa_japan.gif Los Angeles Art Association and The Japanese American National Museum present: Lita Albuquerque’s Stellar Axis. An expansion of LAAA’s ongoing ArtSpeak programming, this special evening will feature a presentation of Albuquerque’s powerful site-specific art installation in Antarctica. Ms. Albuquerque is an internationally-renowned installationist, environmental artist, painter and sculptor. She is committed to developing a visual language that brings the realities of vast time and space to a more human scale and is widely acclaimed for her ephemeral and permanent art works executed in the natural landscape and in public sites. .
.
Albuquerque is one of the rare artists and humanists responsible for thoughtfully and imaginatively placing the elemental concepts for a living, functional cosmology for 21st century culture within public consciousness. Stellar Axis is the first part of Albuquerque’s newest ephemeral Earth Art work, THE POLE PROJECT, a star map of blue diameters on ice planned for installation at both the North and South Poles which will result in an exhibition of artwork, photographs and a documentary film. A panel discussion by the artist, astronomer Simon Balm and Filmmaker Sophie Pergrum will follow.
