Maya Lin: Systematic Landscapes

is a major exhibition of new sculptures, drawings, and installations by renowned artist Maya Lin. In 1981, Lin's Vietnam Veterans Memorial dramatically changed the language and form of commemorative sculpture by infusing minimalist design with the emotional charge of memory. Her subsequent work, whether monument, sculpture, design object, or building is equally characterized by its harmony of message and material. In recent years, Lin has focused on a reconsideration of landscape in a time of ecological tension and change.  This new body of work engages the issue of our fragile connection to the environment in timely and poetic ways.  

 

This exhibition is organized by the Henry Art Gallery, University of Washington, Seattle. A catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
