“Larry Bell. Complete Cubes” at Hauser & Wirth07:04

Join SCI-Arc Channel for a glimpse of the recent exhibition ‘Larry Bell. Complete Cubes,’ presented by Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles. SCI-Arc faculty Florencia Pita [Graduate Thesis Coordinator/Partner Pita + Bloom] and Joe Day [Principal Deegan Day Design LLC] present an architectural perspective on Bell’s work in a conversation at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles entitled ‘The Architectonics of Larry Bell’s Glass Cube’. ‘Larry Bell. Complete Cubes,’ was the gallery’s first solo exhibition for the internationally acclaimed American artist in his hometown. Larry Bell’s innovative approach to sculpture and perceptual phenomena has placed him uniquely at the hub of both Southern California’s Light & Space movement and New York Minimalism in the sixties, which continues to inform his practice today as a forerunner of California Minimalism. This landmark exhibition offered viewers insight into Bell’s lifelong dedication to the glass cube through a groundbreaking body of work that has become inextricably linked to the emergence of Los Angeles as an internationally significant center of artistic innovation.
