sintesi del comunicato stampa

Americas Society's Visual Arts Department will co-host with Parsons Fine Arts, School of Media and Technology a panel discussion on Monday, November 11 at 7pm. Maria del Carmen Carrion (Independent Curators International and art critic), Andrea Geyer (Artist and Associate Professor and Interim Director of Graduate Studies, Parsons Fine Arts), Cristobal Lehyt (Artist) and Gabriela Rangel (Chief Curator of Visual Arts at Americas Society) will examine the context as a contested locus for the exploration of contemporary forms of subjectivism displayed through drawing, painting, sculpture and appropriation. Speakers will discuss issues related to the currency of site-specific sculpture in the exhibition 'Iris Sheets' by Cristobal Lehyt, on view at the Americas Society through December 14, 2013. Lehyt's approach to site-specific questions the immediate perception of sight (and the site) presenting it as a device of cultural translation: what you see is not what you get. Although diverse, all the elements combined tackle the tensions of an artist who is not interested in undertaking an essentialist celebration or in restaging political mythologies from the Cold War. Even though the monumental wood sculpture soaked in wine echoes the shape of the geography of Chile, Lehyt frames his ideas and visual strategies through the blend of multilayered references to Conceptualism, Land Art and Minimalism.
