“I’m not trying to satisfy anyone. I really make things because I’m curious—that’s the reason.” —Lynda Benglis

Artist Lynda Benglis reunites with her first fountain, The Wave of the World (1983–84)—once thought to be missing following its original installation at the 1984 Louisiana World Exposition, but now recently found, restored, and installed at New Orleans City Park​—in a new episode from the ART21 Exclusive series.
