Olana and the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros are in dialogue this season as we continue to explore the ways in which 19th century landscape art inspired contemporary art in the Americas. Join curator and writer Luis Pérez-Oramas, Ph.D, to learn more about artist Jesús Rafael Soto, whose work Penetrabe, part of the CPPC collections, is installed on the grounds of Olana this season. Soto was a Venezuelan kinetic artist inspired by landscape, perception and interactivity with his viewers. Illustrated lecture followed by Q&A and an abridged tour of the exhibition OVERLOOK. Refreshments will be served.

This presentation is held in conjunction with the exhibition OVERLOOK: Teresita Fernández Confronts Frederic Church at Olana, a collaboration between The Olana Partnership and the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros. In it, artist Teresita Fernández examines Frederic Church and his contemporaries’ response to the cultures and landscapes they experienced during their 19th century Latin American travels. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore Fernández’s perspective and respond to her provocative installation in Olana’s Sharp Family Gallery.
