Beth Lipman: Collective Elegy surveys the last decade of the artist's work in glass, metal, clay, video, and photography. A pioneering glass artist, Lipman's sculptural practice explores aspects of material culture and deep time through still life, site-specific installations, and photographs. Ephemeral and intricate, the work addresses mortality, materiality, and temporality. Lipman is also known for site-responsive installations that activate the specific history of objects, individuals and institutions.
