Feeling Shapey: Artist Talk with Alberto Aguilar and Alex Bradley Cohen

Artists Alberto Aguilar and Alex Bradley Cohen look back on their ten years of collaboration, discussing past work that spans video, sound, drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, and performance. They speak about overcoming doubt and utilizing play to produce a vast and prolific body of work.

This artist talk includes an improvised performance, during which Aguilar and Cohen will fully utilize their ability to intuitively communicate through alternative forms. Afterwards, they will open the conversation to the audience for a Q&A, which may lead the two to feel doubtful but end hopefully.

Feeling Shapey is presented in conjunction with Alberto Aguilar moves on human scale. Extended until July 20, this large-scale survey exhibition explores how the Chicago-born and based artist’s various life roles and surroundings have shaped a searching, inquisitive practice that is grounded in, and produces, a radical everyday.
