Dario Robleto: The Aorta of an Archivist

April 5 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

In conjunction with the exhibition Healing, Knowing, Seeing the Body, the Spencer Museum of Art commissioned Houston-based artist Dario Robleto to create a new work of art. The Aorta of an Archivist is an immersive film and sound installation that connects Robleto’s research on the cosmos, the human heart, and the history of recording our bodies. In this talk, Robleto takes us through his research and process, to the boundaries of outer and inner space, and across thresholds once believed impassable to question where our observational limits lie.

To view The Aorta of an Archivist or Healing, Knowing, Seeing the Body, make a reservation to visit the galleries. You can also explore the virtual version of Healing, Knowing, Seeing the Body on our website. This event includes live closed captions in English.
