Artist Talk: Ana M. Lopez – Industrial Arts

Terminal 136

Artist Talk : September 16, 2017, 12:30pm – 2pm.

In her new exhibition, Industrial Arts, Ana Lopez utilizes disparate forms of metalworking to address a variety of relationships within the spectrums of the contemporary body to industry, the individual to one’s beliefs and the places we inhabit.

Through an underlying narrative tendency and self-reference to the materials and processes of metalworking, Lopez creates hybrids; sculptural forms which are physical fictions develop into hardware intended to be brought into the first or second skin of a wearer, providing an illustration of what is happening within the contemporary constructed body.
