Los Angeles-based artist Lita Albuquerque will host a lecture and conduct a walk-through Sunday, Sept. 18 at 1 p.m., of her current exhibition “Emergence,” on display at Laguna Art Museum, 307 Cliff Dr., through Oct. 2.
Curated by Laguna Art Museum’s exhibition curator Grace Kook-Anderson, “Emergence” examines two series of works that Albuquerque began in 2005, “Red Pigment Paintings” and “Beekeeper”. Both series deal with particles constituting a form, and both are enactments of unfolding and becoming.
“Since the mid-seventies I have been attracted to working with pure powdered pigment as an interest in color and its phenomenological resonance on our perceptual system, as well as in the particle of pigment itself being a geological emblem, a historical record of what exists in the earth,” Alburquerque said.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with and ask questions of the artist. Admission is free for museum members, and free for non-members with paid admission. For more info visit www.LagunaArtMuseum.org or call 949-494-8971.
