Artist Conversation: Sharon Lockhart

July 2, 2012

While she was here installing Sharon Lockhart | Noa Eshkol, we sat down with Los Angeles artist Sharon Lockhart to talk about the show.

Lockhart first encountered Eshkol's textiles on a research trip to Israel; the textiles led her to Eshkol's unique dance notation system and choreography. Although Eshkol had passed away a few years before Lockhart's visit, her dancers, most of whom had trained with her for over forty years, carried on her legacy, and appear in a multi-channel film installation in the exhibition.

Lockhart says she regards the exhibition as a two-woman show, with a balance between Eshkol's carpets, dances, and models and Lockhart's photography and film installation.
