Lecture by Ester Partegàs
Employing a wide range of sculptural approaches, including photography and text, her work looks at how precariously we assign value, consume and discard. Her 3D facsimiles and images of generic mass-produced objects examine the affective, political and philosophical power that material culture exerts over daily life.
Partegas has held shows internationally, most recently at The Drawing Center, New York; the Transborder Biennial/Bienal Transfronteriza, El Paso Museum of Art & Museo de Arte de Ciudad Juárez; at BAM, Brooklyn; at the Museum of the City of New York, NY; and Fabra i Coats, Barcelona, and her work has been included in “Hyperobjects. A Reader” edited by Timothy Morton and Laura Copelin, Ballroom Marfa. Her work is represented by NoguerasBlanchard, Barcelona/Madrid; and Foxy Production, New York. She is a lecturer at Parsons/ The New School, New York. www.esterpartegas.com
