David Lamelas (b. 1946, Argentina) is a key figure in the history of conceptual art and experimental film. Comprising film, video, performance, photography, sculpture, installation, and drawing, his complex practice excavates the viewer’s perception and critically assesses the mechanisms of cultural production. Central to Lamelas’s oeuvre is the notion of time and what people make of it. His work has been the subject of several solo exhibitions, including David Lamelas, Extranjero, Foreigner, Étranger, Ausländer at the Museo Tamayo, Mexico City, and the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (2006), and Time as Activity: David Lamelas at the Hunter College Art Galleries, New York (2021).

How have artists given form to the intangible aspects of erotic experience in their work?
Please join us for a roundtable conversation with artists David Lamelas, Carlos Motta, Wynnie Mynerva, and La Chola Poblete on how they have approached eroticism—from its radical potential to its oppressive regulations—in their practices. Their discussion will be moderated by curators Mariano López Seoane and Bernardo Mosqueira.
This live event is organized in conjunction with the exhibition Eros Rising: Visions of the Erotic in Latin American Art, curated by Mariano López Seoane and Bernardo Mosqueira, at the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA). The conversation will be in Spanish and hosted on Zoom, and a recording will be made available online after the event.
