  • For decades, the Los Angeles–based artist Lita Albuquerque has blurred distinctions between Land art and Light and Space on increasingly grander scales, whether it be building installations surrounding the pyramids in Egypt or placing sculptures across Antarctica to mirror the formation of the stars. Her cosmic explorations continue with two new bodies of work that are currently being shown at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood, from January 9 through February 27, 2016, and at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, from January 26 through April 10, 2016.

Joan Takayama-Ogawa: 2013-14 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

Jo Lauria and I devered a paper, "3 Waves of Innovation: Ceramics at Otis College of Art and Design" during the National Council for the Education of Ceramic Arts (NCECA). Wave 1= Peter Voulkos during the 1950's. Wave 2 = Ralph Bacerra during the 1980's and 1990's. Wave 3 = Joan Takayama-Ogawa 3-D Painting and Clay along with the use of a new product, Paper Clay, in Sculputure. In addition, I went on a tour of the Kohler factory and museum in Sheboygan, WI, and visted the Racine Art Museum where I had three pieces in an exhibition. I visited the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and saw an outstanding emerging artist NCECA juried exhibition.
