Since the early 1970s, Lita Albuquerque (born 1946, Santa Monica, CA) has created an expansive body of work, ranging from sculpture, poetry, painting, and multi-media performance to ambitious site-specific ephemeral projects in remote locations around the globe. Often associated with the Light and Space and Land Art movements, Albuquerque has developed a unique visual and conceptual vocabulary using the earth, color, the body, motion, and time to illuminate identity as part of the universal.

Albuquerque represented the United States at the Sixth International Cairo Biennale, where she was awarded the Biennale’s top prize. She has also been the recipient of the National Science Foundation Artist Grant Program for Stellar Axis: Antarctica, three NEA Art in Public Places awards, an NEA Individual Fellowship grant, a fellowship from the Civitella Ranieri Foundation and MOCA’s Distinguished Women in the Arts award. Her work is featured in the Anderson Collection’s current exhibition, Stellar Axis
