Maya Lin

The Ecology of Maya Lin: A Memorial for the Planet  

Her mother taught Literature and Maya Lin often finds inspiration in poetry, the cadences of her childhood echoing throughout an enviable career that has spanned genres and generations. It seems only fitting, then, that a hefty Rizzoli retrospective of Lin’s work, out last October, unfolds less like a picture book and more like a literary text, with sketches, marginal notes, hand-written narratives, and critical essays coiling into a complex narrative. It is hard to overstate Lin’s... [more]

  With all due respect to it, conceptual art isn’t something I'm crazy about and that's why I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Maya Lin's exhibition at the Arts Club of Chicago, on view until April 23, 2010. Lin, an American artist and architect who explores landscape and geological phenomena, creates uncanny replicas of commonly known locations, such as Blue Lake Pass, wooden rock-like formations that recreate the Rocky Mountain pass. Although her art seems cool and impersonal upon f... [more]

    In contradiction to the exhibitions at X Initiative, across the street is Maya Lin’s latest grand installation, Three Ways of Looking at the Earth. While not typically a diehard fan, I have to admit I was seduced. Leaving the X space on 22nd Street, I could see one of Lin’s large, minimal landscape sculptures through the massive windowed walls of Pace Wildenstein.  I was compelled to go in. Launched into the public eye after submitting the winning design for the controversial Vietnam Vetera... [more]

The unclad, expansive elegance of Maya Lin’s Systematic Landscapes angled in at me on the narrow gallery approach, her work spare but magnetic. Obediently, I ratcheted my head back to the introductory video sequence, jolted into humility just minutes ago upon learning a colleague of mine, Tyler Potts (DU BFA 2002), created this logically laid, constant fade of images for the PBS series art:21. This instantly lent a shade of kinship to my rapport with the exhibition and further drove me t... [more]
