Artist's Choice: Analia Saban and Bill Fox in Conversation
Thursday, June 10, 2021
6:00 PM–7:00 PM
artist Analia Saban joins Bill Fox, director of the Center of Art and Environment at the Nevada Museum of Art, for a conversation about Saban’s Teaching A Cow How to Draw
, currently on view at the Clark.
In her practice, Analia Saban (b. 1980, Buenos Aires) explores the intersections and overlap between traditional media and new technologies, disrupting conventional techniques of drawing, painting, weaving, and sculpture to probe the capacity of an object and the myriad meanings found within its form. Saban discusses her site-responsive project with Fox in the context of the broader legacy of art in the environment and land art. The Center for Art + Environment supports the practice, study, and awareness of creative interactions between people and their natural, virtual, and built environments, and serves as a programmatic focal point for the Nevada Museum of Art.
Saban’s work is in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Centre Pompidou; The Israel Museum, Jerusalem; the Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York; Fonds regional d’Art contemporain (FRAC) d’Auvergne, France; the Hammer Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and others. The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (2019) and the Blaffer Art Museum, Austin, Texas (2016) have both presented solo exhibitions of Saban’s work. Saban lives and works in Los Angeles.

He has published sixteen books on cognition, art, and landscape and has researched and written books set in the Antarctic, the Arctic, the Himalaya, and the deserts of Chile, Australia, and the United States.
