Larry Bell, who lives in Taos, New Mexico, was one of the leading proponents of the Minimalist sculpture movement in the 1970s. During this period, he started making elegant and mysterious large-scale works using industrial plate glass coated with reflective metals.
Since that time, Bell has gone on to work with other materials as well, recently producing large-scale sculpture in metal, as well as smaller works on paper. His talk presented his artwork, both past and present.
