UPCOMING EVENTS

NOW ON VIEW

Lara Favaretto
On view February 12 – April 28, 2019Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara is pleased to present Lara Favaretto, featuring works spanning Turin, Italy-based artist Lara Favaretto’s more than twenty-year career, and presented in collaboration with Rennie Collection, Vancouver, Canada. The exhibition marks Favaretto’s solo U.S. West Coast institutional debut. Lara Favaretto is curated by Abaseh Mirvali, Executive Director & Chief Curator.

Lara Favaretto (b.1973, Treviso, Italy) lives and works in Turin, Italy. Throughout her career, Favaretto has worked with a range of media, including performance, sculpture, installation, and video. Based on profound conceptual research, Favaretto’s complex artistic practice brings forth works that interact with space, activating the community and setting of a specific place. While Favaretto engages and allures audiences with gestures of the seemingly playful or festive, upon closer examination, her work paradoxically evokes the inevitability of failure and decay.
