A group exhibition of objects that question the limits of possibility. Thirteen Los Angeles artists present large scale sculpture and site specific installation. Brand Library & Art Center rises to the challenge! Thirteen Los Angeles area artists exhibit in this, the Brand's very first "Artist As Curator" show in a series. This is part of the Learning Arts at Brand initiative, also known as LAB. Go Big or Go Home is curated by Rough Play.
The exhibitors' artwork, whether produced through a physically demanding work process, extensive research, mastery of new disciplines, or by exposure to psychological or emotional vulnerability, represents a significant dedication to an idea that can be read as fearless and committed.

Rebecca Niederlander is a visual artist living in Los Angeles, CA. Her site-specific sculptural installations are labor-intensive abstractions that use repetition and the ephemeral nature of the materials to address the individual’s position within am intergenerational community. Her work also explores the nature of ego and its relationship to the necessity of solitude and boredom to create individual thought. Recent projects include There’s a Nova in the Bed next to Mine (56th International Venice Italy Biennale), Axis Mundi at the Museum of Contemporary Religious Art in St. Louis, MO, and The Gravitational Pull of Satellites and Eclipses, for Los Angeles International Airport. 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.
