Larry Bell is featured in ‘LAX – MIA: Light + Space’ at The Surf Club, north of Miami Beach during Miami Art Week. On display will be Cube 24-2-92 (1992).
The work forms part of a series that dates back to the early 1960s, when the artist began experimenting with vacuum deposition onto glass. At the time, the choice of the cube shape was in large part due to its simplicity and material symmetry, an ideal composition in which to explore the vacuum deposition process. The works made at this time would lead in the late 1960s to Larry Bell’s glass shelf works such as Gone but not forgotten (1969).
In Cube 24-2-92, Bell continues to play with our perception by printing daguerreotype-like forms and grids onto the six sides of this multi-dimensional sculpture.
‘LAX – MIA: Light + Space’ will focus on 15 works by seven Los Angeles Light and Space artists and has been curated by Joachim Pissarro.
Works by Peter Alexander, Mary Corse, Laddie John Dill, John McCracken, Helen Pashgian, and De Wain Valentine will also be shown in this exhibition.
