'Liza Lou: Color Field' Exhibit At The Museum Of Contemporary Art San Diego

For 20 years, the glass bead has been Liza Lou’s primary art-making material. Lou transforms the possibilities of this tiny unit of color and embellishment just as she expands the meaning of the objects she recreates.

"Color Field" (2010-2013), her newest floor-bound sculpture, features an expansive prism of color. The gridded rainbow is composed of uniform lengths of wire, each threaded with a single shade of beads. The sheer expanse of the piece conveys exuberance, underscored by the work’s bounty: its multitude of colors, beads, and touch. Pulsing and pixelated, "Color Field’s" complex mosaic foregrounds its construction and the network of hands which helped shape it.

Exhibition Dates: "Color Field" will be showing Friday, July 12, 2013 through Sunday, November 3, 2013 at the downtown location.

Tickets: Admission is free for visitors under the age of 25 as well as for military members and their families (with ID). Students 26 and over (with ID) pay $5.00. Seniors also pay $5.00. General Admission is $10.00. The Museum is free on the third Thursday of every month from 5-7 PM, and it is closed Wednesday.
