Museum Exhibitions

To celebrate Larry Bell and his 80th birthday, the Harwood Museum of Art presents Larry Bell: Cubic Propositions highlighting his ongoing investigation of the cube. The exhibition opens Friday, December 13, 2019 and is installed along with permanent collection objects in the Joyce and Sherman Scott Gallery.

This exhibition showcases the evolution of the cube over 60 years of Larry Bell’s time in the studio. From the moment Bell dedicated himself to the studio in 1959, after briefly studying at Chouinard Art Institute (now the California Institute of the Arts), Bell used the form of the cube to explore light, space and surface. As the artist says, “The work is my teacher.” For Bell, each piece contains lessons that lead to the next creation. Unlike the Harwood’s more extensive Hocus Focus and 12 exhibition of 2018, Cubic Propositions includes only five cubes. This special birthday exhibition includes the first cube Bell made in 1959 and the very latest cube produced in the studio just weeks ago. Director Juniper Manley said, “This is meant to be a very personal exhibition for Larry as a neighbor and a friend of the Harwood. It was originally just going to be a pop-up for his birthday, but we decided to keep it up longer to share these unique pieces with our visitors.” They will be on view through April 26, 2020.

The Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery at Scripps College in Claremont, California is home to the Marer Collection of Contemporary Ceramics. The collection, which includes nearly 900 works by American, British, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese artists, is focused on West Coast ceramics and the work of those artists involved in the ceramic revolution of the 1950s. The collection is available for viewing online through the Williamson Gallery website.
