Curated by David Pagel
Liz Nurenberg is a Los Angeles-based artist and a recent graduate of Claremont Graduate University. She is a recent recipient of the Helen B. Dooley Fellowship while at CGU and was also awarded a fellowship student residency at the Ox-bow School of Art in 2002. She has shown in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Michigan. Primarily working in sculpture, Nurenberg’s interactive objects act as experience stations where viewers can form relationships both to the work and to other viewers. In her interactive work, Nurenberg explores ideas of intimacy, personal space, and how the body physically connects with something while confusing the line between viewers and viewed.
