Fred Eversley’s lenses and mirrored forms reflect and refract the world, and our place within it. Eversley hit his stride with his primary mode of working at the same time the Light and Space movement gained momentum in Southern California. Yet unlike his Light and Space and Finish Fetish peers who often collaborated with scientists and outsourced fabrication of their work, Eversley’s firsthand technical understanding as a scientist himself (Eversley came to Southern California in the 1960s to work as a consulting engineer for NASA and his early career was spent with United States’ largest aerospace company during that period–Wyle Labs in Los Angeles) enabled him to utilize materials in ways that uniquely position his practice.
Eversley is the subject of a major show at The Orange County Museum of Art / OCMA when the museum
opens on October 8.
He and Zuckerman discuss science, how his work is about energy, failure, infinite possibility, climate change, working in New York, the importance of his groundbreaking 1978 exhibition at OCMA (then known as the Newport Harbor Art Museum), black holes, and proximity to other artists and thinkers!
