About the Lecture
Less than 2 months to visit the exhibition “Construction of Reality”, and we specially invited the artist himself coming to HOW Art Museum again! Leandro’s going to meet with the audience and share his artistic creation concept.
The theme of the lecture “Leandro’s Architecture of Fiction” is derived from his another identity as an architect. Many of his works are rooted in his excellent exploration in the field of architecture, and he has transformed the expression of contemporary art by exploring the relationship between art and life.
This lecture will be held in the form of an interview between the artist and the curator. Through the question of Chen Che, curator of HOW Art Museum, the mysterious creation concept of Leandro will be gradually unveiled.
HOW Art Museum has presented Argentine artist Leandro Erlich’s first solo exhibition in China “Construction of Reality” since 1st June. The artist brought 13 large interactive installations according to the spatial characteristics of the space.
