Carlos Amorales in Conversation with Bobby Pietrusko

Mexican-born installation and film artist Carlos Amorales will engage in conversation with Robert Pietrusko, Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning, and GSD students about the use of drawings and other representations to cross the terrain between creativity and practical execution. Focusing on his ambitious “Triangle Constellation” recently opened at the Harvard Art Museums' Calderwood Courtyard, Amorales will show the successive representations used to communicate and negotiate a complicated installation while maintaining the original intentions.

After studying at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, Carlos Amorales returned to Mexico City, where he founded his studio, Estudio Amorales. He works in a variety of media, including video, animation, painting, drawing, sculpture, and performance. Much of his work examines contemporary Mexican culture and values.
