In celebration of the launch of a book documenting his Nasher installation, Laphthisophon will speak about the project and auxiliary subjects such as European-American culture, the artwork-as-archive, and the boundary between art and its trace.
In fall 2015, artist Stephen Lapthisophon presented a project called Toccare (Non) Toccare which acted in conversation with the exhibition Giuseppe Penone: Being the River, Repeating the Forest. Taking place in and around the Nasher Sculpture Center, Toccare (Non) Toccare included sculpture, found objects, drawing, poetry, sound, photography and video that extended and paid tribute to many of the central ideas in Penone’s work.
The Gallery Lab series brings the spirit of experimentation to the Nasher galleries. Join us for informal conversations, interactive presentations, performances, demonstrations and unexpected viewpoints on art with artists and voices from other disciplines.
