On view through July 30, 2017, Anne Lindberg exhibits a site-specific installation, pivot blue green (2014) in Landscape, abstracted curated by Al Miner for the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.
This new installation in the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art’s Eunice and Julian Cohen Galleria offers a contemporary spin on landscape art. Ten works present contemporary art as the latest chapter in the story of landscape art through the ages. Works include new acquisitions to the museum as well as new commission by Lindberg and Jason Middlebrook. Their soaring creations evoke nature’s sublime potential through color and pattern, using the dramatic architecture of the Linde Family Wing to guide their work.
Lindberg’s pivot blue green evokes nature by using only thread and staples. Suspended from the vaulted ceiling of the Linde Family Wing’s second floor, Lindberg’s work soars gracefully above visiting guests. This is the first time Lindberg has created a work installed at this height (16 1/2 feet), allowing visitors to look up through a field of color.
