Lily Cox-Richard will create a new sculptural work/intervention that embeds the specifics of place (including debris and litter) in ubiquitous building materials. The work included in Berm will fuse intensively crafted objects, found materials, and cast concrete to challenge assumptions of positioning. As a political act of resistance, Cox-Richard will also invert the gallery’s privileged space by making the sidewalk outside the gallery, and its low, floor-level windows the prime vantage point for the work. This project expands Cox-Richard’s investigations into the relationships between natural resources, stewardship, labor, landscape, and the built environment in the rapidly developing area of Midtown Houston.
ABOUT LILY COX-RICHARD
Lily Cox-Richard’s sculpture engages familiar forms and materials that have become unmoored from their original contexts and roles. She mines this distance by digging into their cultural and materials histories and forging new paths between them. She has been awarded an Artadia grant, a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, a postdoctoral fellowship in the University of Michigan’s Society of Fellows, and residencies at the Core Program, Millay Colony, RAIR Philadelphia, and the MacDowell Colony. Recent solo exhibitions include Yvonne (Guatemala City), Artpace (San Antonio, TX), She Works Flexible (Houston), Hirschl & Adler Modern (New York), Vox Populi (Philadelphia), and the Hudson River Museum (New York). Lily Cox-Richard lives and works in Richmond, VA, where she is an assistant professor in the Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts.
