2013 Future Curators Spotlight
Get to know the Albright-Knox’s 2013 Future Curators through the works in the Gallery’s Collection that inspire them.
Charlotte Saunders:Liz Larner’s 2001, 2001
My favorite piece of artwork at the Albright-Knox is a stainless steel sculpture created in 2001 by Liz Larner. This is my most favorite piece the Gallery has because, when I look at it, it reminds me of so many feelings and emotions. Normally when I look at a piece of work, I feel rather confused. The bright color is what makes it stand out the most to me and its overall size is very intimidating. This piece of artwork has inspired me in many ways.

DECADE Theme Preview: L.A. AngelsWork 3: Liz Larner’s 2001, 2001
Liz Larner’s large-scale fiberglass and steel geometric sculpture 2001 is coated in automotive paint, giving the work an iridescent quality that makes it appear to change color from green to purple, depending on the angle at which it is viewed. Larner is part of a group of Los Angeles–based artists who use elements of dark humor in their creations. Some viewers are unsure how to feel about this sculpture, with its part-playful, part-foreboding, and slightly sinister qualities.
