Janet Biggs & Joyce J. Scott

This show brought together the work of two women whose practices demonstrate a unique mastery of materials. Biggs is a research-based artist known for her immersive work in video, film and performance. Scott explores the ways in which art can be used to influence change through sculpture, weaving, printmaking, and performance. Image: Joyce Scott


"Black Holes & Rabbit Holes" closed on March 20. If you didn't make it to Moore's campus to see the show in person, no worries! You can explore the historic exhibition virtually. For the very first time, we turned over all of Moore's ground floor gallery spaces to a single artist. This mid-career retrospective placed a medley of Lowe's existing works—alongside never-before-seen projects—into newly imagined tableaus. Inspired by Moore's architecture and defined by its structural limitations, the exhibition invited viewers to experience a wholly immersive invasion of the artist’s large-scale constructed forms.
