  • 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.

Alumnus Matt Carter Selected As an Artist to Watch

Graduate Fine Arts Lecture: Rebecca Morris

Rebecca Morris paints challenging large-scale abstractions. Known for writing “Abstraction never left, motherfuckers” in a 2004 painting manifesto when abstraction was out of favor in the art world, Morris has developed an unconventional, post-Bauhaus visual language that suggests new directions for abstract painting. Her canvases teem with unusual, seemingly disconnected shapes, each rendered in a different technique and floating freely through space. “I want my work to be a dynamic presence, to create visual and physical impact in a space,” Morris said in a 2012 interview.

Alumnus Jeffrey Vallance

Jeffrey Vallance ('81, MFA Fine Arts) 's work engages religious and secular aspects of pop culture in peculiar and particular ways. His process involves integrating and researching individuals and institutions ranging from the King of Tonga at the Royal Palace, to the Nixon Museum or Vatican officials. One of these video projects, Blinky, the Friendly Hen, was a collaboration with Otis classmates Bruce Yonemoto, Tom Recchion and Jim Rygiel.

Alumna Alison Saar
