Spheres and Lenses is Helen Pashgian's first solo exhibition in New York since 1969 and her first with Lehmann Maupin in the United States. The show will feature spheres and lenses of various sizes, many of which have never been exhibited before.
Born in 1934 in Pasadena, California, Pashgian is a pioneer and pre-eminent member of the 1960s Light and Space movement in Southern California. Over the course of her career, Pashgian has produced a significant series of sculptures comprised of vibrantly colored columns, discs, and spheres that often feature an isolated element appearing suspended, embedded, or encased within. The exhibition will coincide with a major survey exhibition of Light and Space masters opening in November 2021 at Copenhagen Contemporary.
