Beth Lipman's House Album

For more than twenty years, artist Beth Lipman has transformed glass, metal, clay, video, and photographs into powerful statements addressing mortality, temporality, identity, and excess.

Her ongoing project, House Album is a highlight of Beth Lipman: Collective Elegy, (September 24, 2021–January 2, 2022), the Museum's survey of the artist's last decade of work. Covering an entire wall, House Album comprises a multitude of flat glass panels, between which are sandwiched photographs of furniture and objects that memorialize important events or notable figures from American history. Recalling a Victorian scrapbook, the installation is an allegory of our collective home. A stunning yet polarized house struggling to make sense of its own history and identity.

This film gives insight into Beth Lipman’s process as well as the deep routed ideas and beliefs that influence her work. 

Filmmaker Atesh Atici, with funding provided by the Alturas Foundation.
