SCAD Museum of Art presents "To-day, February 20th," an exhibition by Berlin-based Mexican artist Mariana Castillo Deball. The artist uses installation, sculpture, photography and drawing to explore the role objects play in our understanding of identity and history.
Castillo Deball's work departs from exhaustive research and establishes a close link with literature, philosophy, archaeology and the history of science, from which she adopts varied methodologies and incorporates them into her artwork. For her SCAD Museum of Art exhibition, Castillo Deball creates a large-scale interactive work based on the history of the date Feb. 20 — the opening date of SCAD deFINE ART 2018.
Marianna Castillo Deball has shown her work internationally at the Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst, Ghent, Belgium; Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil, Mexico City, Mexico; Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen, Switzerland; Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach, California; Museo Experimental El Eco, Mexico City and Chisenhale Gallery, London, England, among many others.
"To-day, February 20th" is curated by Humberto Moro, SCAD curator of exhibitions.
The exhibition is free for all museum members, and SCAD students, faculty and staff with a valid SCAD Card. Open to the public with the cost of museum admission.
This exhibition is part of SCAD deFINE ART 2018, held Feb. 20–23 at university locations in Savannah and Atlanta, Georgia, and Hong Kong. SCAD deFINE ART is an annual program of exhibitions, lectures, performances and public events that highlights emerging and established artists and visionaries.
