Directions: Jim Lambie

May 13, 2006 – October 4, 2006 (new closing date)

Museum: Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden

Location: Lobby

As part of the Directions series and for his debut show in Washington, D.C., Scottish artist Jeff Lambie transforms the museum's lobby into a lively, colorful, immersive environment that includes one of his signature taped floor pieces from his Zobop series and a group of sculptures. He is recognized internationally for his dynamic sculpture and installation works that carefully articulate and embellish readily available commodities -- handbags, belts, mattresses, leather gloves, magazines, record albums, speakers, turntables, doors, mirrors and much more -- to explore the interplay between vision and sound, formalism and emotion, and desire and manipulation.
