Life as Activity: David Lamelas Exhibition Tour

December 4, 2pm and 4pm

Hunter College Art Galleries Bertha and Karl Leubsdorf Gallery
132 East 68th Street
New York, NY




Life as Activity: David Lamelas 
November 3 – December 18, 2021
Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 11-5 pm

 

Curated by Harper Montgomery, Professor of Modern and Contemporary Latin American Art with Sarah Watson, Chief Curator, and Re’al Christian, Lazarus Graduate Curatorial Fellow, and with MA and MFA students enrolled in the curatorial practicum seminar: The Transgressive Itineraries of Conceptualism.
 

The Hunter College Art Galleries are pleased to present Life as Activity: David Lamelas, an exhibition marking the artist’s first solo show in New York in more than a decade. For over half a century, Lamelas (born 1946, Buenos Aires) has made work that pushes the boundaries of contemporary art by defying conventions of artistic media. Although he is globally recognized as a ground-breaking figure of conceptual art, his explorations with the spatial qualities of film and the signifiers of identity have not been adequately investigated. Life as Activity focuses on Lamelas’s experimentation with film and his examination of identity and narrative fiction in light of his ongoing insistence that his artistic practice has always, in one way or another, been grounded in his sense of himself as a sculptor.

The exhibition brings together sculpture, film, and photography made across many decades and locations to center this aspect of Lamelas’s artistic practice. These works include two key sculptural installations he made in Buenos Aires in 1966 and 1967, Situación de cuatro placas de aluminio (Four Changeable Plaques), a moveable configuration of aluminum sheets, and Limit of a Projection, a spotlight in a dark room; a series of ten photographs shot in London that pose as film stills for a non-existent movie, The Violent Tapes of 1975; and two films, The Desert People, a pseudo-documentary about a road trip to a Native American reservation which was shot in Los Angeles in 1974 and The Invention of Dr. Morel, a film based on the Argentine writer Adolfo Bioy Casares’s novel The Invention of Morel (1940), which was filmed in Potsdam, Germany in 2000. Both films will be screened on an ongoing basis at set times, which will be available on the Leubsdorf Gallery website: leubsdorfgallery.org. Showcasing the ways in which Lamelas makes us aware of how the stories we tell ourselves are shaped by encounters with space and time, all of these works invite us to participate in scenarios in which container, contained, observer, and observed become blurred.

 

On occasion of the exhibition, a publication has been produced that includes texts on Lamelas by Professor Harper Montgomery and students in Hunter’s graduate programs in Art History and Studio Art. Essays focus on twelve works by Lamelas and include previously unpublished materials from the artist’s papers. Published in collaboration with Hirmer Verlag, the book is distributed by the University of Chicago Press and available for purchase here.

Both the book and the exhibition have been developed in close collaboration with David Lamelas, who worked with students via Zoom on both projects during the course of the pandemic, from spring of 2020 through the fall of 2021.

Life as Activity: David Lamelas results from an Artist Seminar Initiative grant awarded by the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA), which advances scholarship and public engagement with art from Latin America. It was organized under the auspices of ISLAA’s Artist Seminar Initiative, an educational and curatorial program that fosters intimate exchanges between students and living Latin American and Latinx artists.

Additional support for Life as Activity: David Lamelas is made possible by Joan Lazarus, Gagosian Gallery and the James Howell Foundation in support of the Advanced Certificate in Curatorial Studies, and by the galleries’ sustaining supporters the David Bershad Family Foundation, the Susan V. Bershad Charitable Fund, Inc., Carol and Arthur Goldberg, the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation, and the Leubsdorf Fund.

Queer Art Chat on Materials and Bodies

Tuesday, December 7, 2021, 7:00-8:30 p.m. EST (Online, Zoom) 

Tuesday, December 14, 2021, 7:00-8:30 p.m. EST Online, Zoom) 
 

Queer Art Chats are a chance to build community among people invested in queer and trans perspectives, art, and liberation. No specialized understanding of art, art history, or queer theory is required; our own experiences and perspectives will form the basis for participation. In each session, participants will work with facilitators and each other to collectively generate ideas about queerness and transness.
 

Queer Art Chat on Materials and Bodies will explore artworks that invoke the idea of bodies using assemblages of organic materials without depicting figures. Together, we will investigate how abstracted forms can gesture to lived, embodied experiences. Register here.

Virtual Symposium 
“Past/Present: Collecting, Exhibiting and Conserving Contemporary Art in Asia,” January 5-8, 2022 

Hosted by the Taoyuan Museum of Fine Arts (TMoFA) and supported by the Asian Cultural Council (ACC) 2021 project grant. 

Since the mid-twentieth century, contemporary artists have adapted performance, industrially-fabricated materials, readymades, and time-based media into a contemporary cultural heritage of great complexity. Atop that complexity, the evolving notion of authenticity has deeply challenged traditional museum practices from acquisition and curation to conservation and collection management. While these are global themes, developing regional approaches and solutions help build more effective networks of care. Past/Present: Collecting, Exhibiting and Conserving Contemporary Art in Asia, January 5 - 8, 2022, is a 4-day virtual symposium to lay the groundwork for a regional network of care for contemporary art across Asia. 

The online Symposium will feature 16 talks thematically grouped across four panel discussions. It will provide an overview of regional efforts to collect, install, preserve, and document contemporary art in Asia. It will further address the emerging, yet urgent challenge in the region of caring for contemporary materials across the diverse linguistic, cultural and political landscape. Unlike the non-profit models in western countries, culture institutions in Asia are governed by different restrictions and local regulations. To foster meaningful conversations, each country’s unique ecosystem of societal reform, colonial history, museum structure, culture policy, and funding mechanisms are acknowledged as key contributing factors and presented as a primary point for conversation and discussion. 
The Symposium’s aim is to create a venue for our participants to openly discuss how resources, training, guiding principles, and documentation methods can best be shared within the regional preservation community. It will lay the groundwork for the next stage of the project following the symposium–the formation of a robust regional knowledge-based network for contemporary and time-based media art conservation in Asia. 

The Symposium panelists include practitioners from Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore, the United States, and Canada, as well as local speakers in Taiwan and will include case studies from
contemporary art centers, artist archives and estates, advocacy groups, university gallery spaces and independent art studios. With a diverse set of panelists from different social, cultural, and political backgrounds, the four-day discussion will be designed to help construct regionally feasible workflows and strategies. 
To promote the development of multilingual literature on contemporary collections in Asia, the Symposium will be offered with linguistic and translation support throughout the program. Participants are encouraged to present and communicate in the language they feel most comfortable in order to best discuss their work and publication will include the speaker’s chosen language as well as Chinese and English translations. 

For more information about the program agenda, please visit the registration page.

Registration portal closes at 5:00 p.m January 4th (Taipei Time), 2022.
