BEVERLY PEPPER: Selected Works 1968-2015

January 21 – March 18, 2017

Kayne Griffin Corcoran Gallery, Los Angeles

American sculptor and member of SACI’s Artists & Designers Council Beverly Pepper is exhibiting Selected Works (1968-2015) at Kayne Griffin Corcoran in Los Angeles through March 18, 2017.

Kayne Griffin Corcoran presents the first major solo exhibition in Los Angeles by pioneering sculptor, Beverly Pepper. Pepper is a world-renowned artist who has been working since the 1950s in a variety of materials. Although she is known for her monumental public works, site specific and land art installations throughout the world, Pepper has also mastered more intimate forms in cast iron, Cor-ten steel, bronze, stainless steel and stone, treating each material with unique delicacy.  In addition, Pepper was among the first artist to use Cor-Ten steel in her sculptures. Originally drawn to the material for its aged look, experiences of time and space motivate her practice. The exhibition features iconic works ranging from 1968 to the present day—an original grouping from different series of Pepper’s signature oeuvre.

SACI Alum, Keri Rosebraugh (MFA Studio Art, 2016) was present at the exhibition opening and reported back to SACI with a few images:

Pepper’s works have been exhibited and collected by major museums around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the White House Sculpture Garden, the Hirschhorn Museum and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., Les Jardins du Palais Royal in Paris, the Galleria d’Arte Moderna in Florence, and numerous other national museums in Europe and Asia. She is a recipient of The Alexander Calder Prize, the International Sculpture Center’s 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award and Chevalier de l’Ordre des arts et des lettres in France.

She is currently working on small works in stainless steel, as well as land installations in Italy such as an amphitheater for the city of L’Aquila, a church for the city of Todi and a monumental work for the entry to the port of Venice.
