Opening Reception | Lara Favaretto

February 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free
Join us at MCASB as we celebrate the opening of a new exhibition by artist Lara Favaretto. Lara Favaretto, in collaboration with Rennie Collection, Vancouver, Canada, features works spanning Favaretto’s more than 20-year career and marks the artist’s solo U.S. West Coast institutional debut.

Lara Favaretto (b.1973, Treviso, Italy) lives and works in Turin, Italy. Throughout her career, Favaretto has worked with a range of media, including performance, sculpture, installation, and video. Based on profound conceptual research, Favaretto’s complex artistic practice brings forth works that interact with space, activating the community and setting of a specific place. While Favaretto engages and allures audiences with gestures of the seemingly playful or festive, upon closer examination, her work paradoxically evokes the inevitability of failure and decay.

Lara Favaretto is curated by Abaseh Mirvali, Executive Director & Chief Curator.
