The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University, or MSU Broad, presents “David Lamelas: Fiction of a Production” from June 2 to Jan. 6. 

This is the first solo exhibition in the Midwest for Lamelas. He is a widely recognized pioneer of conceptual art from Argentina and has received much international recognition for his work. 

“Fiction of a Production” focuses on sculptures and site-specific works that analyze and deconstruct architectural space, blurring the line between sculpture and architecture and repositioning sculpture as a relationship between place, space and time. 

The exhibition also explores the ways in which the sequential structure of film has influenced the artist’s practice and how time, consequently, becomes sculptural material.

“David Lamelas: Fiction of a Production” is curated by Carla Acevedo-Yates, associate curator.
