Lynda Benglis (b. 1941, Louisiana, USA) moved to New York City in the late 1960s. She now resides in New York and Santa Fe, Mexico and is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellow-ship and two National Endowment for the Arts grants, among other commendations.
Her work is held in important public collections and has been exhibited at Tate Modern, The Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum. Benglis was the subject of a 2010-11 international retrospective that travelled to The Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; The Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven; Le Consortium, Dijon; New Museum, New York; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Most recently, in early 2014, Benglis showcased a series of new ceramic works in a solo exhibition at Cheim & Read, New York and Thomas Dane Gallery, London.
‘I totally believe that art is an open dialogue and that it is not logical. It does not always make sense.’
