REBECCA NIEDERLANDER is a visual artist living in Los Angeles, CA.
Rebecca Niederlander’s sculptures and site-specific installations are labor-intense abstractions that use repetition and the inherent ephemeral nature of the materials to address the individual’s position within the larger intergenerational community; as well as the micro and macro nature of ego, and ego’s relationship to the necessities of solitude and boredom in the creation of individual thought. Recent projects have included There's A Nova In the Bed next to Mine, which was included in an official project for the 56th Venice Biennale in Italy, the solo exhibition Axis Mundi at the St. Louis Museum of Contemporary Religious Art, 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 holds an MFA from UCLA, a BFA from California College of the Arts, and a BA in Journalism from Southeast Missouri State University. She is married with one daughter.
