An Evening with David Lamelas

Monday, April 1, 2013, 7:00 p.m.
Theater 2 (The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2), T2

Born in 1946 in Buenos Aires, David Lamelas has been a key figure of the Conceptual art avant-garde since the 1960s. His early structuralist films and media installations of the 1960s and 1970s are particularly important in their innovative treatment of time and space, and his work has been highly influential upon a later generation of artists. Lamelas represented Argentina at the 9th Sao Paulo Biennial In 1967 and at the 36th Venice Biennale in 1968 with the seminal work Office of Information about the Vietnam War on Three Levels: The Visual Image, Text and Audio, which was recently acquired by the Department of Media and Performance Art. For this evening, Lamelas will discuss the piece and his oeuvre as a whole.
