Description

One of the world’s foremost living sculptors, Jaume Plensa is widely known for large-scale public artworks, and intimate, meditative installations that aim to unify individuals through connections of spirituality, the body, and collective memory. "Jaume Plensa: Talking Continents" is comprised of 19 stainless steel sculptures formed from letters derived from eight alphabets: Arabic, Chinese, Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese, and Latin. 

In this Art Department Gallery Talk, Professor Gail Simpson will discuss Jaume Plensa’s use of opacity and transparency, how he materializes language, and the influence of technology on his artistic process.

"Talking Continents" will be on display from December 2 through April 15.
