This Artist's Talk featuring Leticia Obeid will be moderated by co-curator Zuna Maza and is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Copy, Translate, Repeat: Contemporary Art from the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros.

Leticia Obeid (b. Argentina, 1975) will discuss her artistic practice, which encompasses video, drawing, writing, and performance and examines authorship, distance, and the experience of reading, writing and observation. Obeid’s work on view at 205 Hudson Gallery, B., was created during her 2007 residency at Cité Internationale de Arts in Paris, and is a reflection of the artist's exploration of the city through Walter Benjamin’s unfinished text The Arcades Project.

Obeid studied painting at the School of Arts of the National University of Córdoba in Argentina and received a scholarship from the Fundación Antorchas between 2003 and 2005 for additional training in video. Her works have been included in exhibitions in Argentina and international, such as Sights and Sounds,The Jewish Museum, New York, 2015; Doubles, MUAC, Mexico City, 2014; and The Right to the City, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, 2013. Obeid lives and works in Buenos Aires.

This event is free and open to the public.
