Distinguished Speaker » Artist Lynda Benglis
Lynda Benglis is an artist whose artwork Eat Meat, is in Crystal Bridges’ permanent collection. Benglis was first recognized in the late sixties for her poured latex and foam works during a time when the art world was dominated and controlled by male artists. Benglis’s work generally exists in an indefinable space between painting and sculpture, and explores metaphorical and biomorphic shapes as well as the materiality of the surface. She is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and two National Endowment for the Arts grants, among other commendations. Benglis’s work is in extensive public collections including: the Solomon Guggenheim Museum; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Museum of Modern Art, New York; The National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
