Pun Value: Four Works by Lee Lozano

June 16, 2016 | Adam Bennett

December 3, 2011 – April 16, 2012

Pun Value, an intimate display of four works by Lozano, demonstrates the diversity of the artist’s interests throughout her short career. All of the included works feature suggestive verbs as titles: Ream, Stroke, and General Strike Piece. Two are paintings, one is a study for a painting, and another is an art-life piece—a conceptual practice involving tests the artist imposed on her daily life, recorded in a notebook, and transcribed for exhibition. As case studies, these four works reflect a kinetic network of ideas traveling across numerous media; they represent the best work of an artist who refused to be defined in any one way.
