Charlotte Events: The Editor’s Pick
José Luis Landet at LaCa Projects
3.15.19 – 5.11.19
LaCa Projects is opening a show by Argentine artist José Luis Landet on Friday, March 15. The Manifested Landscape: A Message of Uncertainty will begin with an opening reception with the artist. Luis Landet, awarded Untitled Art Fair’s Inagural Fundación Otazu (Spain) Art Prize in December 2018, shatters and reassembles discarded archival photographs, writing, slides, drawings, and letters, which become an essential part of his creations and come to question their concept. Can landscapes bear an identity if they are constructed by a subject’s view, and therefore, from subjectivity? It is at the intersection between politics and view that Landet’s manifested landscapes emerge. The exhibition be will on view March 15 – May 11, 2019
