IRA LOMBARDÍA. VOID. SCAD MUSEUM OF ART
Interested in the theoretical and practical implications of digital visual culture, interdisciplinary artist Ira Lombardía investigates how images affect and define our understanding of art today, questioning modes of production, distribution, and consumption. Lombardía defines herself as a “visual ecologist” who appropriates images to construct new meanings, identify connections, and reveal conflicts and contradictions. With Void, the artist’s first solo U.S. museum exhibition, Lombardía deepens her long-standing investigation into ephemerality and the dematerialization of the object, premiering a new experiential sculpture that marks a significant expansion of her artistic process.
