Liza Lou
American, b. 1969
Follow

In 1996, Liza Lou launched a highly successful international career with her exhibition of Kitchen (1991-95) at the New Museum in New York, a laboriously detailed, tongue-in-cheek re-creation of a kitchen, every inch of it covered in shimmering glass beads. Like Kitchen, much of Lou’s work is about work, and all of her sculptures, installations, and wall pieces are covered with glass beads. She explores darker themes, like endurance and the division of labor between the sexes, races, and classes, and lighter ones, like the pleasure of looking, in her work. “You are drawn in by the sheer volume of material and form and care and love,” she explains. “My work almost argues that the pleasure of looking is part of what it is to be alive.”
