Lynda Benglis was born in 1941 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and currently lives and works between New York, Santa Fe, and Ahmedabad, India. In the sixties, she emerged as a pioneer in abstraction, placing both traditional and nontraditional materials in action. A survey of her work recently took place at the Van Abbemuseum, the Netherlands, which then traveled to the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Le Consortium, Dijon, the Museum of Art Rhode Island School of Design, the New Museum, New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
