This week Kimberly speaks with Lluís Alexandre Casanovas Blanco about his current project he did in collaboration with Gabo Camnitzer titled Aesthetic Behavior; Developmental Sequences, which is now on view at NurtureArt until March 10.
Gabo Camnitzer is an artist and educator whose artistic production is centered on subverting the reductiveness of the dominant epistemological order though fostering in viewers and participants an ability to inhabit contradiction and account for difference. He has presented projects at Queens Museum, Tenthaus, Oslo, GfZK, Leipzig; Artists Space, New York; Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm; GCAC Melbourne; Kunstsaele, Berlin. He received an MFA from Valand Academy, Sweden, attended the Whitney Independent Study Program, and received a research fellowship from The Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm, Sweden. He is an Assistant Professor of Visual Art at Columbia University, New York.
Lluís Alexandre Casanovas Blanco is an architect, curator and scholar working at the intersection of architecture, performance, and media. His recent work addresses the capacity in which spatial experience is coded by institutional power—with a specific interest in spatial discourses which oppose modern rationalization. He was the chief curator of the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016 together with the After Belonging Agency, and he is currently a PhD Candidate at Princeton University, and a Critical Studies Helena Rubinstein Fellow 2017–18 at the Whitney ISP.
