Virtual Studio Visit with Iván Argote

12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

As we practice social distancing and look for engaging ways to share art with you, Artpace continues its virtual studio visit series as part of our Artpace at Home initiative.

Our next studio visit will be with incoming Summer 2021 International Artist-in-Residence Iván Argote. Argote is an artist and film director. Through his sculptures, installations, films, and interventions, he questions our intimate relationships with others, institutions, power, and belief systems. He develops strategies based on tenderness, affect, and humor through which he suggests critical approaches to dominant historical narratives and attempts to decentralize them. In his interventions on monuments, large-scale installations, and performances, Argote proposes new symbolic uses of public space.

During the studio visit, you’ll get a glimpse into the artists’ studio, works in progress, and learn more about his creative practices. Argote will join us live from his studio in France. 

The virtual studio visit will take place on the Artpace Instagram. Follow us!
