Podcast Conversation: Join Julio Criado of Alarcón Criado Gallery and DJ Hellerman, curator for SCAD Museum of Art for a live conversation on the work of Ira Lombardía.
Time: Wednesday Dec 1, 1pm
Location: Podcast Lounge
Interested in the theoretical and practical implications of digital visual culture, interdisciplinary artist Ira Lombardía investigates how images affect and define our understanding of art today. Questioning modes of production, distribution, and consumption, Lombardía defines herself as a “visual ecologist” who appropriates images to construct new meanings, identify connections, and reveal conflicts and contradictions. With VOID, the artist’s first solo U.S. museum exhibition on view at the SCAD Museum of Art, Lombardía deepens her long-standing investigation into ephemerality and the dematerialization of the object, premiering a new experiential sculpture that marks a significant expansion of her artistic process.
