Tickets: $10 or FREE for students

To coincide with the opening of  PlaygroundPublic Art Fund presents the first public lecture in New York by Iran do Espírito Santo. One of Brazil’s most accomplished contemporary artists, his body of work ranges from exquisitely detailed works on paper to large-scale wall pieces and immersive sculptural installations. Much of his art explores the space between the concrete and the abstract, translating familiar forms and everyday materials into formally precise and perceptually complex works. Dealing with surface, structure, light, and the inherent character of different materials such as glass, stone, and cast metal, his singular forms often create subtle illusionistic effects. Inviting viewers to participate in this realm of perceptual experience, the artist’s new public work for New York City, Playground, takes on an ambitious architectural scale at the entrance to Central Park. The development of his work, leading to his largest public work to date, will be the focus of his talk.
