Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto’s monumental installation featuring hanging polyp-shaped sculptures will be reinstalled in the Farrell Gallery. Fragrant spices such as ginger, cloves, and turmeric are stuffed into skin-like Lycra fabric, and suspended throughout the gallery, engaging senses of sight and smell. Runs November 20 to February 21.
Robert Irwin: Light and Space
Light itself focuses and diffuses our gaze in Irwin’s environmental light installation. In this work, developed during Irwin’s residency in MCASD’s Robert Caplan Artist-in-Residence Studio, he uses fluorescent light tubes alone as the main triggers of a mass-less, enveloping perceptual experience. Runs November 20 to February 21.
Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle: Juggernaut
Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle’s work utilizes natural forms such as clouds, icebergs, and DNA as metaphors to interrogate social issues. Often using video and sculpture, Manglano-Ovalle’s work connects politics and culture by representing the underlying forces of human interaction and intervention. His video installation was filmed in El Vizcaíno Biosphere Reserve in Baja California, the largest protected area in Mexico. Runs December 19 to March 13.
