As of March 16, 2020, due to concerns over COVID-19, Pitzer College Art Galleries are closed.
Pitzer College Art Galleries presents Natural History: A Half-Eaten Portrait, an Unrecognizable Landscape, a Still, Still Life, an exhibition of new ceramic sculpture by Los Angeles-based artist Candice Lin.
The exhibition comprises a full-scale ceramic representation of Candice Lin reclining with her future cat. Lin’s monumental ceramic sculpture references the history of clay sarcophagi, specifically the Etruscan terracotta funerary sculptures from the 9th through 2nd centuries BCE, famously life-sized and often featuring a man and a woman reclining together.
The exhibition runs through March 26, 2020. Lin’s ceramic sculptural work for this exhibition was fabricated in the Pitzer College ceramic studio in connection with her semester-long artist residency at Pitzer.
Candice Lin has exhibited nationally and internationally and was included in Made in L.A. 2018. Other recent exhibitions of her work in Los Angeles include The inscrutable speech of objects (Occidental College, 2019) and Meaningless Squiggles (Francois Ghebaly, 2019).
