Taos NM–April 25, 2020. Continuing BeyondTaos’s series of photo blogs about Taos artists showing their art in venues outside of Taos, we present Larry Bell’s most recent exhibition, “Larry Bell Still Standing,” installed at Hauser and Wirth’s downtown New York gallery (548 West 22nd Street) in February.
The installation process was directed by Cody Riddle, Taos artist and Bell’s studio preparator, and documented by Ollie Bell, the artist’s son. Ollie’s photos are presented here along with a gallery-produced video of the show narrated by the artist himself. Enjoy this behind-the-scenes tour of an exhibition cut short by the Covid-19 epidemic.

A note to all Taos artists. Please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) about your exhibits outside of Taos – where, when, and what you’re showing. I find it amazing how many oartists quietly work in this community then take the work to other cities for exhibition and sale. It’s a testament to the creative inspiration of this Place.
