Library Study

Brookline Public Library Artist in Residence
Fall/Winter 2016 and ongoing
The Public Library of Brookline

As the first Artist-in-Residence (AIR) at the Brookline Public Library, Liz Nofziger has created a constellation of small ruptures in the norm, spread throughout the building, inside and out. There is great variety in the work, from sound pieces to beams of light, but all are tied together through color and site. Photos by Lara Kimmerer.

Ovation washes you in a giant wave of love. It wasn't love originally intended for you, but the artists have managed to obtain it and are giving it to you as a gift. Bathe yourself in it for as long as you would like.

Ground Lock: A site-specific installation for feelers

On a bank of three windows this work eliminates and/or enhances the view of the ground from one perspective by filling in the brick with translucent red vinyl. The view only locks into place from one vantage point, most precisely if you are 67.5” tall. This flattened surface outside becomes an abstracted form on the window. The light that enters the gallery in turn projects hot rosy forms on the gallery ground, moving through space with the sun’s travel to find and influence other works.

July 24 - October 15, 2014

BCA Artist Resident Liz Nofziger brings free community ping pong to the BCA Plaza this summer with Bounce, a colorful, interactive outdoor installation made up of three conjoined, regulation-sized ping pong tables, custom-engineered to form an oversized Community Ping Pong Court. This unique configuration, which opens to the public on July 24th and remains active on the Plaza through October 15th, encourages participants - from the proficient to the amateur - to try their skills, make new friends and make up their own rules. All are encouraged to stop and play - paddles and balls will be available at no charge around the clock. Each bounce of the ball will be captured by microphone and amplified, processed and played back in real time, adding another element of recreation to the work.

Shifting Terrain: Landscape Video

Currier Museum of Art
150 Ash Street, Manchester, NH

July 2 - September 18, 2011

This summer, experience the Currier's first exhibition to exclusively feature moving image artworks, including digital projections, site-specific interventions and sculptural installations. Shifting Terrain: Landscape Video is part of the Spotlight New England series, which highlights the most talented artists from the region and invites fresh perspectives on issues of global interest and contemporary art-making. Landscape representations have a long history in the visual arts and have been used to communicate a range of social, political and personal perspectives. American painters and photographers in the mid-1800s, for example, often framed the American landscape as a pastoral ideal or untamed wilderness to depict the virtues of the nation. The time-based projects in Shifting Terrain are in conversation with these traditions, but incorporate strategies that respond to the unique artistic, social and economic climates and physical realities of today. They offer new opportunities to think about and understand the complexity of the landscapes we encounter -- both the physical sites and their representations




Beyond Purview

New Art Center Newton, MA
September 20 - October 22
Curated by Ashley Billingsley

Featuring work by Ashley Billingsley, Andrea Evans, James Horgan, Liz Nofziger, Daniel Phillips, Daniela Rivera, Gina Siepel

Beyond Purview is an exhibition of mixed media paintings, drawings, sculpture, installation, and video. Through these media the artists investigate altered landscapes: both physical places and psycholgical ideas. By exploring our physical world, the artists are inspired to question what is and what we actually know of it.
