Blaffer Art Museum will mount the first major museum presentation of Argentinian artist Analia Saban, an event that will survey her last decade of practice through 30 works that explore everyday objects through unconventional usage of materials.

Saban takes a forensic approach to media and their embedded traditions and conventions. Surveying art history as if it was a "murder scene," she peels back (researches, deconstructs, reconstructs) layers of material histories and subject matters in search of new directions and possibilities. Saban's initial project included tracing and annotating paint strokes of existing paintings in an analytical process that culminated in literally stripping pictures of their material substance and iconography, and culminated into a rolled up ball of colored strips of painted fabric from a plethora of unraveled paintings.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through March 18, 2017.
