Analia Saban in conversation with Javier Sánchez Martínez

November 2 @ 7:00 – 8:15 pm

Join us at 7 p.m. Wednesday, November 2, for a conversation between Argentinian artist Analia Saban, whose exhibition is on view through September 24 at Blaffer Art Museum, and Blaffer curatorial fellow Javier Sánchez Martínez.

About the exhibition

Surveying art history as if it was a “murder scene,” Analia Saban plumbs the histories of painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography to challenge their limits and capacities by making the constituent parts of each medium the very subject matter of her inquiry. Her unconventional methods such as unweaving paintings, laser-burning wood and canvas and molding forms in acrylic paint remain central to her practice as she continues to explore art-making processes and materials in relation to the objects of her daily experience.

Organized by Claudia Schmuckli, Curator-in-Charge, Contemporary Art and Programming at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, CA, and former Director and Chief Curator at Blaffer Art Museum, the exhibition surveys the last decade of Saban’s work.
