Maya Lin: Systematic Landscapes was an exploration of landscape, in which the artist translated existing natural formations into a series of wall-mounted sculptures and large-scale installations. In all of these works there is a constant rethinking of what a landscape is and how we see and relate to it. Lin’s work was installed in three of the Henry’s galleries and afforded viewers different relationships to or perspectives of landscape. The works ranged in scale from a 2,500 square foot 2 × 4 Landscape, and the room-sized installations Blue Lake Pass and Water Line to a number of smaller sculptures and drawings exploring aspects of real and imagined landscapes and bodies of water. This exhibition also provided the first museum presentation of the models and drawings for Lin’s Confluence Project.
