Lynne Harlow: Sweetheart of the Rodeo
January 22-March 20, 2016
855 Commonwealth Avenue
Lynne Harlow uses minimalist forms to transform mundane spaces into immersive environments that pulsate with light and color. Harlow works with everyday materials, such as colored fabric or vinyl, and also incorporates sound or live music to affect a moving and multi-sensory experience for the viewer. Continuing the Boston University Art Galleries’ series of site-specific projects for the Annex, Harlow takes a minimalist approach. Using broad swaths of painted color and modest materials as the works’ primary elements, Harlow will create and installation that transforms and exploits the odd character of the space in surprising ways.
