Lucy + Jorge Orta | Light Works

26 novembre 2010 - 25 février 2011
Black Dog Space, Solo Exhibition and Book Launch

The exhibition, which coincides with the launch of the beautifully illustrated monograph publication Light Works by Black Dog Publishing, traces the emergence of Jorge Orta’s practice in Argentina from 1972 to 1983.

On view will be a selection of previously un-exhibited work from the Orta’s extensive archive including early video performance, tactile poetry, mail art, graphic scores and as well as handmade editions designed to communicate beyond the very limited sphere of contemporary art practice during the military regime. A unique opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the commitment and ethical dimension of the artists work over the last thirty years.

Black Dog Space is an independent exhibition space housed at 10a Acton street, London WC1X 9NG, presenting a programme of exhibitions organised in conjunction with international artists who have been published in-house.
