The History of Color Through Art Lapis Lazuli
Catch the final weeks of the first US solo museum show of Aslı Çavuşoğlu in New Museum.
Aslı Çavuşoğlu is not only fascinated by color: the artist’s practice is research-driven, examining objects, images, and cultural symbols that have endured over time. For the New Museum exhibition and residency, she takes blue as a starting point, with particular attention to lapis lazuli, This semi-precious stone which has been primarily procured from Afghan mines since the seventh century BC, was the first natural blue, that humans were able to find. Çavuşoğlu follows its travels to China, Africa, Europe, unveiling how it became a sacred symbol in Western painting.
On view until January 13th, The Place of Stone features Çavuşoğlu’s new body of work— wall fresco panels, showcasing information about lapis lazuli’s trade and distribution, as well as its cultural symbolism. The artist also recorded an audio guide for the exhibition, for you to dive into it completely.
The New Museum has an array of other exhibitions closing soon, including Sarah Lucas: Au Naturel, Marianna Simnett: Blood In My Milk, Dan Herschlein: The Architect, and an exciting lineup of future shows. Check it out.

Aslı Cavuşoğlu不仅着迷于色彩：艺术家的实践是研究驱动的，检验随着时间推移经受住的物体、图像和文化符号。对于新博物馆的展览和地点，她以蓝色为出发点，特别关注青金石。这种半宝石自公元前7世纪以来主要从阿富汗矿山开采，是人类能够找到的第一种天然蓝色宝石。 Çavuşoğlu之前前往中国、非洲、欧洲的旅行，揭示了它如何成为西方绘画中的一种神圣象征。
在1月13日之前，The Place of Stone主题展展出了Çavuşoğlu的新作品——壁画壁板为特色，展示了有关青金石的贸易、分布以及文化象征的信息。 艺术家还为展览录制了一个音频指南，供您深入了解。
