Annual Artist’s Talk by Sculptural Processes Group

About this Event

Join Dr Jo Applin, Reader, and Dr Pia Gottschaller, Senior Lecturer, in conversation with Analía Saban for The Courtauld's Sculptural Processes Group's Annual Artist’s Talk. Saban is a contemporary conceptual artist based in Los Angeles. She rethinks traditional media such as painting, sculpture and drawing in the context of scientific and technological experimentation and reworks materials like marble or canvas in confusing, subversive ways. We will discuss with Saban her artistic practice and how it relates to the larger social implications of her material and object-based inquiries.

Analia Saban (*1980 in Buenos Aires, Argentina) lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. She received a BFA in 2001 from Loyola University, New Orleans, and an MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 2005. Her work has been included in solo exhibitions internationally at Modern Art Museum Fort Worth (2019), Qiao Space, Shanghai (2017-18), Blaffer Art Museum, Houston (2016), and Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena (2014). Recent group exhibitions include those at Marciano Art Foundation, LA (2019), Hammer Museum, LA (2018), Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Aïshti Foundation, Beirut (both 2016-17) and Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2013). Her work has also been featured at Art Safiental 2018: Horizontal–Vertical (2018); NGV Triennial at National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (2017-18), and the first Hammer Museum biennial, Made in L.A. 2012. The recipient of numerous awards and fellowships, including an artist residency at the Getty Research Institute (2015-16), she is also represented in the collections of, among others, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Musée national d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris; and National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne.
