Light and Flow: Liliane Lijn's Crossing Map

American-born Liliane Lijn is a pioneering and visionary artist, whose richly varied contributions to contemporary art span more than six decades. She is best known for her kinetic and light-based sculptures, but in the early 1980s, also began to create new imagery of the feminine spirit, including body-related sculptures and her 1983 artist book, Crossing Map, with around 150 original drawings. In this lecture, Jennifer Mundy, Thaw Senior Fellow and former Head of Art Historical Research, Tate, London, will explore what this book and its drawings reveal about Lijn’s development as an artist at a critical point in her career, and why she described Crossing Map as her ‘credo as a woman’.
