Alexandre Arrechea Artist Talk and Gallery Tour
Join Alexandre Arrechea and Rosa Lowinger for a conversation about the artist's career and a live Q&A
Join us from 3 to 5 PM on Sunday, Sept. 17 for an artist talk and gallery tour with Alexandre Arrechea to celebrate the opening of Landscape and Hierarchies.
Landscape and Hierarchies explores the connections between the individual and the collective and the power small actions have on society and the environment. Curated by Elsa Mora, the exhibition was produced in collaboration with ArtYard and includes multimedia installations, monumental watercolor drawings, and sculptures.
The artist talk will be held in ArtYard’s McDonnell Theater. The talk is moderated by Cuban-born American writer, curator, and art conservator Rosa Lowinger and features never-before-seen footage of the early stages of Arrechea’s career and an audience Q&A.
Arrechea is internationally renowned as one of the founding members of the Cuban collective, Los Carpinteros, and has earned acclaim as an artist whose work interrogates such issues as history, memory, politics, and the power relations of the urban space. This exhibition marks 20 years of Arrechea’s solo career.
Arrechea will then lead attendees on a gallery walk of the exhibition, which is presented in ArtYard’s first-floor River Gallery and second-floor John & Lynn Kearney Gallery. The gallery will be closed to the public during this time.
Masks are required.
Tickets are $25 and will be available soon.
