Join us for a conversation in Jaume Plensa's studio on Thursday, July 9 from 2pm – 3pm (EST) between the artist and Mary Sabbatino, vice president and partner at Galerie Lelong & Co. Jaume will be hosting the webinar from his studio in Barcelona, Spain.
This conversation is held on occasion of "Jaume Plensa: April is the cruelest month" (June 12 – July 10, 2020). The online exhibition presents eight new drawings from the "STILL" series by the artist, created during his month of confinement at home in April this year.
As in many of Plensa’s works, language is incorporated into the imagery. He used words like anxiety, fear, and love, calling attention to the various psychological states people experienced during the months of confinement. The title, "STILL," resonates on many levels: it connotes a period of waiting, the gathering of energy, a state of silence and quietness. In the contemplation of these drawings, we see a world both intimate and expansive, expressive of shared human experience during a time when the world was “still.”
