The Making of Liza Lou's Kitchen

Watch as Liza Lou reflects on her monumental installation Kitchen, a tribute to the unsung labor of women throughout time. Made over the course of five years, Kitchen presents a full-scale, exactingly detailed room encrusted in a rainbow of glistening glass beads. Through boxes of breakfast cereal, the poetry of Emily Dickinson, and everyday objects of kitchen drudgery, Lou created a glittery pop vision of suburban happiness to explore the complex role women have played in modern American life.
