Alexandre Arrechea

Aug 1—Sep 15, 2022

In Residence: June 10 to June 24, 2022

Alexandre Arrechea’s work comprises large-scale installations, sculptures, watercolor drawings, and videos that debate such issues as history, memory, politics, and the power relations of the urban space.

Landscape and Hierarchies was an exhibition on view from Sept. 17, 2022 to Jan. 22, 2023 that explored the responsibility that lies between the individual and the collective and the ripple effects human actions have on society and nature. Curated by Elsa Mora, the exhibition was produced specifically for ArtYard and includes monumental watercolors, sculptures, and multimedia installations.

A summer residency in the leadup to the exhibition offered Arrechea the time to reflect, experiment, and create work. During that period, he became fascinated by the Delaware River, which resulted in the largest piece of the exhibition and likely of its kind, a 71-foot watercolor titled River and Ripples employing water collected from the river.
