Comini Art History Lecture Series: Ricardo Basbaum: Diagrams, 1994-Ongoing

When: 
Tuesday, March 5, 2019 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Brazilian artist and writer Ricardo Basbaum will discuss his work and his most recent book,Diagrams, 1994-Ongoing. He investigates art as “an intermediating device and platform for the articulation between sensorial experience, sociability and language.” Since the late 1980s, he has been nurturing a vocabulary specific to his work, applying it in a particular way to each new project. Recently his work was included in the opening of the New Tate Modern in London (2016),Something in Space Escapes Our Attempts at  Surveying (Kunstverein Stuttgart, 2014), and biennials in São Paulo, South Korea, Kiev and Sydney, among other exhibits.

His solo projects in the past five years have been shown throughout Brazil and in Vancouver, London and Chicago. An anthology of his diagrams was presented at the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea, Spain (2013). Basbaum is the author of Manual do artista-etc (2013) and Além da pureza visual (2007) and contributed toMaterialität der Diagramme - Kunst und Theorie (2012). He lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, where he is a full professor at the Instituto de Arte e Comunicação Social of Universidade Federal Fluminense. For more information call 214.768.2787.

Dalí's Persistence of Memory: From the Universal to the Ultra-local

When: 
Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 5:00pm - 6:30pm

With its swarming ants and soft watches, no artwork has been so singularly responsible for disseminating a particular understanding of Surrealism as Salvador Dalí’s The Persistence of Memory (1931). Surprisingly, however, this “10 x 14 inches of Dalí dynamite” has been analyzed only meagerly beyond Dalí’s own post-facto description that the painting alluded to Einstein’s theory of relativity combined with an overripe cheese.
