The Construction of Social Space:
Alberto Borea and Lan Tuazon in Conversation with Sara Reisman
Friday, May 29th, 2015
6 to 8pm
Alberto Borea and Lan Tuazon’s bodies of work deal with issues of access in public space, both municipal and privately owned. Tuazon’s Architectures of Defense (2010-2015) is featured as prints of elaborate security fences that comment on the absurdity of protective fences that surround public spaces. Architectures of Defense is in direct dialogue with Borea’s Wall Street photographs and sculptures made from scrap materials found in the high-rise located at 1 Liberty Plaza, New York City, commenting on ideas of power, value, excess and waste in an area of vast abundance.
