Crossovers between art and architecture make practitioners of these forms innovative collaborators. Join interdisciplinary artist Ira Lombardía, SCAD MOA curator DJ Hellerman, architect Marcos Parga of Studio MAPAA, and SCAD architecture professor Maggie McManus for a conversation about transforming ideas into physical structures.
A “visual ecologist,” Lombardía (b. 1977, Asturias, Spain) appropriates images to construct new meanings, identify connections, and reveal conflicts and contradictions, ultimately questioning modes of production, distribution, and consumption. With VOID, the artist’s first solo U.S. museum exhibition, she deepens her long-standing investigation into ephemerality and the dematerialization of the object, premiering a new experiential sculpture that marks a significant expansion of her process.
