Weisman Museum Hosts Larry Bell Art Exhibition
Pepperdine Magazine is the feature magazine for Pepperdine University and its growing community of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends.
The Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art displayed the art exhibition Larry Bell: Pacific Red from January 21 through April 2.
The exhibition featured a new site-specific installation that used Bell’s signature materials—glass, plastic, and industrial coatings—to push the boundaries of vision and perception.
Bell was a founder of the California Light and Space movement in the 1960s and has since continued
to explore the dynamic possibilities of light and optics—forcing audiences to question the reliability of what they see. Using layers of overlapping glass, his surfaces function both as mirrors and windows, pushing the limits of sculpture by dissolving mass into perceptual phenomena.
