Pepón Osorio at IBB
On Wednesday, March 23, 2016: Pepón Osorio will give a public presentation of his work and describe the workshop process he is offering IBB students. He will also cover aspects of his artistic practice with a Q&A session.
The presentation takes place on the Brionplein (Brion square) in Otrobanda at 7 PM.
Osorio is best known for his large scale baroque and polemically charged installations, merging conceptual art and community dynamics. His work emphasizes the exhibition space as an intermediary between the social architecture of communities and the mainstream art world. Osorio has worked with well over 25 communities across the U.S. and internationally, creating installations based on real life experiences.
For almost 2 decades Pepón Osorio has been presenting work in unconventional places prior to exhibiting in a museum setting, thus exploring the subjectivity of meaning in art and the multiple meanings that these installations achieve depending on their location.
