Walking Tour: Vija Celmins at the Met Breuer

ID : 7594   
« back to classes page

Over the course of an accomplished career, Vija Celmins has maintained an exceptional practice in a wide range of media, basing her paintings, sculpture, drawings and prints on the world around us – sometimes directly observing it but more often through an interpretation of photography.  Whether her sources are basic objects from her first studio in Venice, California, photographs of the Pacific Ocean taken from a local pier, or reproductions from newspapers, magazines, scientific exploration, and inquiry, her work has a unique verisimilitude. This exhibition offers a comprehensive view of Celmins’s career with approximately 80 pieces spanning her earliest mature works made in Los Angeles to objects completed in the last five years.
