A Conversation with Artist Enrique Martínez Celaya
An in-depth discussion between The Huntington’s inaugural Fellow in the Visual Arts, Enrique Martínez Celaya, and curator Dennis Carr
Enrique Martínez Celaya, The Huntington’s inaugural Fellow in the Visual Arts, will join Dennis Carr, Virginia Steele Scott Chief Curator of American Art, in a conversation about the artist’s work and artistic practice, which merges elements of art, philosophy, and poetry. This conversation will consider the inspirations that have shaped Martínez Celaya’s practice, especially the immersive installation There-Bound, currently on view in the Erburu Galleries, which interweaves borders, place, memory, movement, dislocation, and time.
This event is open-seating, first come, first served.
