The David Winton Bell Gallery presents Pierre Huyghe | Untitled Mask and Gabriel Martinez | Mountain War Time, on view until May 28, 2017.
Pierre Huyghe is renowned for making art that challenges the conventions of the exhibition, exploring the possibilities of its dynamic experience. This exhibition is the New England premiere of his recent film Untitled (Human Mask) (2014). Set in the landscape of manmade devastation that surrounds Fukushima, Japan.
Gabriel Martinez presents a series of x-rays created from the exposure of the film to pieces of trinitite. Named after “Trinity”—the site of the first atomic weapon detonation in 1945 near Alamogordo, New Mexico—trinitite is created when an atomic bomb explodes over gypsum sands, fusing the granules into a radioactive glass.
Conversation with Gabriel Martinez 5:30pm, Friday, March 17 at the List Art Center Auditorium. Opening reception to follow.
Malcolm Grear Designers created the exhibition identity, promotional materials, and installation graphics.
