REBECCA NIEDERLANDER is a visual artist living in Los Angeles, CA. With her specific interest in the relationships between architecture, the domestic world, and the individual, her site-specific sculptural installations address the individual within the larger community, as well as the micro and macro nature of ego, movement, and place-holding. Recent projects have included The Agency of Community Redevelopment Explores the Bottom of the Well in Search of Something Nutritious, including sound and multiple large scale sculptural elements about Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, and The Gravitational Pull of Satellites and Eclipses, a site-specific project for the Los Angeles International Airport consisting of 185 wire sculptures suspended along a 192-foot concourse. Niederlander is a recipient of grants from the National Endowment of the Arts, the Durfee Foundation, Pasadena Arts Alliance, and the Cornell University Council of Creative and Performing Arts. She assisted in curating Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Color and Fire: Defining Moments in Studio Ceramics, 1950-2000. She serves as an advisor to the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, CA; and holds an MFA from UCLA, a BFA from California College of the Arts, and a BA from Southeast Missouri State University. She is married with one daughter.
