Nothing warms the heart in the winter like a great home-cooked meal made in one’s own kitchen. In accordance with the compelling work in our current exhibition, Home Again, Home Again, and the dropping temperatures outside, Liza Lou’s critically acclaimed installation, Kitchen, comes to mind.
From 1991-1996, “The Queen of Beads” worked to cover every inch of a normal kitchen with glass beads using only a pair of tweezers! What better way to honor the heart of the home than through a labor of love such as this?
