Meet the Artist: Eduardo Basualdo
In conversation with Tyler Green for live Modern Art Notes Podcast
Friday, November 4
6:30 pm, Lerner Room
For a special Meet the Artist program, Argentinian artist Eduardo Basualdo discusses how his massive and mysterious installations change the way bodies move through space, in a riveting live podcast recording with The Modern Art Notes Podcast founder Tyler Green.
With such diverse influences as literature, puppetry, and psychoanalysis, Basualdo investigates our experience with the physical world through works that straddle the ordinary and the sublime. His preferred media is installation, which stretches not only the physical and psychological limits of art, but also the viewer’s shifting perspective as they move around it.
The End of Ending, a newly-acquired installation currently on view in the exhibition Masterworks from the Hirshhorn Collection, confronts visitors with a colossal, fabricated boulder that takes up an entire room, forcing surprised viewers to navigate around its edges while never seeing the piece in its entirety.
