Organized by Dr. Natalie Maria Roncone
Marfa Contemporary is proud to present a lecture by Mexican artist Gonzalo Lebrija at 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 13. All are welcome.
Lebrija’s The Shadow of the Mexican Vulture abjures the middle range of sizes. Largeness is interactive; big needs small to conform it. Lebrija presents us with objects of infinitesimal smallness and interminable enormity; an impression of a space in which no viewer exists. These two scales of artwork, derived from a visceral notion of contemporary consciousness, conjoin technological advancement with Lebrija’s notion of Mexican identity so that the small and large are seen as instantly interchangeable.
