Join us for the last Distinguished Visiting Artist talk this term!
Since the early 1980s, Cuban-born artist Tony Labat has developed a body of work in performance, video, sculpture, and installation dealing with the body, popular culture, identity, urban relations, politics, and the media. Labat has exhibited internationally over the past thirty years and received numerous awards and grants. His work is held in many private and public collections.
Recent exhibitions include the 11th Havana Biennial; Barbara Gladstone Gallery, New York; Gallery Paule Anglim, San Francisco; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver; ASU Art Museum, Phoenix; and the Basque Museum, Spain.
Labat is currently the Chair of the MFA Programs at the San Francisco Art Institute.
Presented by the University of British Columbia Department of Art History, Visual Art & Theory.
