Latin American Speakers Series 2022: Andrés I. M. Hernández

Andrés I. M. Hernández presents Physiognomy in Contradiction

Hernandez invites us to “feel” the visual artwork of various artists from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Cuba, from its conception to its presentation. The artwork is analyzed from its construction to the relations with spectators and the architecture that surrounds them. 

Fisonomía en contradicción:

Es el proyecto de investigación de doctorado de Andrés Hernández. La tesis de Hernández nos invita a sentir la obra de arte visual desde su concepción, producción y presentación. La obra de arte se estudia desde su construcción y soporte, la presentación al espectador y las relaciones con el espacio arquitectónico. El proyecto incluye artistas de Argentina, Brasil, Colombia y Cuba.
