The first exhibit to include light knots was at Frank Lloyd Gallery in 2013. As the Bell studio states, "In terms of material weight and mass, the light knots are by far the most minimal works in Larry Bell's oeuvre. They also may be seen as products of Bell's most improvisational decision-making and technique, an accumulation of lessons in responding to his materials with spontaneity and intuition gleaned in nearly 60 years in the studio. Composed of thin sheets of polyester coated with aluminum and silicon monoxide, which Bell then twists into a knot. Each hanging form retains or changes its shape through gravity acting upon the object's own surface tension."
Installed by Starr Figura, curator of Drawings and Prints, On Plexiglass is now on view on the 4th floor, in the David Geffen Galleries. The scholarly context and wide range of artists brilliantly shows the history and use of the material. As the MoMA demonstrates, acrylic plastic was invented in the early 1930s, and was widely used due to the properties of being lightweight, stable, transparent and malleable. Other artists from the MoMA collection include Naum Gabo, László Moholy-Nagy, Claes Oldenburg, Bridget Riley, Robert Rauschenberg, Barnett Newman, Jesus Rafael Soto and more. Kauffman's Red-Blue work was acquired in 1965.
Light, Space, Surface: Works from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the first venue for this traveling exhibit is the Addison Gallery, Phillips Academy Andover, from November 23, 2021 to March 20, 2022. Organized by LACMA, this exhibition explores the art of Light and Space as well as related works. In the 1960s and 1970s, various Southern California artists began to create works that investigate perceptual phenomena: how we come to understand form, volume, presence, and absence through light, seen directly through other materials, reflected, or refracted. Many used industrial materials—including sheet acrylic, fiberglass, and polyester resin—in their work.
Light and Space Opening on December 2nd at Copenhagen Contemporary in
Denmark, the exhibit "Light and Space" is the first international look
at a very influential art movement. As a foundation, included are works
by Robert Irwin, Larry Bell, Helen Pashgian and Mary Corse, Southern
Californian artists from the late 1960s. By all accounts, a leader and
innovator was Craig Kauffman. The exhibition at Copenhagen Contemporary continues until September 4, 2022.
On their new website, Sprueth Magers has posted two past exhibits for Craig Kauffman, one in their Berlin space in 2016, and another in their London branch in 2017.
