Museum of Arts and Design Presents: Artist Anne Lindbergh Talks Space, Light, and Architecture
In Conversation with Anne Lindbergh and Yen Ha
Thursday, November 1, 2018 – 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM
$10 general / $5 members and students
Join exhibiting artist Anne Lindbergh for an intimate discussion with Yen Ha, the New York – based architect and founding principal of Front Studio Architects.
Within the setting of Lindberg’s immersive installation, the eye’s level, the pair will elaborate on the artist’s use of space, light, and architectural tools to create a site-specific work. Lindberg’s practice reveals the intrinsic connection between the task of the artist and that of the architect, creating a mediative space and a contemplative experience.
About the Installation
Anne Lindberg designed a new color field for the the eye’s level, a site-specific installation on view at MAD through March 3, 2019. Using heavyweight, colored thread drawn taut through space, Anne Lindberg expands both fiber and drawing practices into the spatial and architectural realms. She builds her site-responsive installations by walking hundreds of thread lines across the space – scaling up, and making bodily, the act of drawing. The effect is that of clouds of color suspended in the air, a formal accomplishment that considers the light, architecture, and movement around and through a site.
