Isabel Barbuzza: (In) Materialities

February 17, 2018 - May 13, 2018

Isabel Barbuzza

Iowa artist and Argentina-native Isabel Barbuzza explores how cultural artifacts and materials influence and shape our perception of the world.

Through combining, altering, and transforming materials, including books, maps, and found objects, to create compelling sculptures and installations, Barbuzza contrasts the worldviews of her native and adopted countries. The artist says, “Through perception, thought, and language, we engage with the physical world in unexpected ways.”

This exhibition is on view in the museum’s lobby and balcony gallery.
