Liz Collins — Energy Field documents the artist’s two-year exhibition at the Tang Teaching Museum. The project is the first in a series that asks artists to imagine what a museum community space can be. Liz Collins explores the boundaries between painting, fiber arts, and installations, creating vibrating color fields bursting with color, shape, and texture. Energy Field incorporated these elements and transformed the Tang Teaching Museum’s mezzanine into a lounge and place for social gatherings. This catalogue reflects on Collins’ energy-inspired artwork and collaborations with friends and community members, featuring images of the space and related events along with newly-published writings by Liz Collins, Nayland Blake, E.V. Day, Eleanor Rochman ’17 and Jessica Pavia ’20, Mike Albo, Shelley Marlow, Leah DeVun and Lauryn Siegel, Laurel Sparks, SKOTE, Jennifer Kabat, Peggy Shaw, and Amelia Bande.
