Menil Collection art opening reception: Dario Robleto: The Boundary of Life is Quietly Crossed
Dario Robleto: The Boundary of Life is Quietly Crossed weaves together a diverse collection of sounds, ideas, personal narratives and scientific and technological research to link two remarkable undertakings that took place in the 1960s: The space race and development of the artificial heart.
Presenting new sculptural work by the artist alongside objects from the museum's holdings, the exhibition examines the psychological and emotional ramifications of pushing, crossing and redefining boundaries, whether in space, the sea or the human body.
Commissioned and developed in a joint research residency with the Menil Collection and the University of Houston Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts and curated by Michelle White.
On view through Jan. 4, 2015.
