On the second segment, Dario Robleto discusses two exhibitions of his work at the Baltimore Museum of Art and The Menil Collection. The BMA is showing Robleto’s “Setlists for a Setting Sun,” and the Menil is offering up “The Boundary of Life is Quietly Crossed.”
Curated by Kristen Hileman, “Setlists for a Setting Sun” is the exhibition of works Robleto made on a residency while at the Headlands Center for the Arts. It mashes up the histories of recorded light and sound. The exhibition was partly motivated by the BMA’s proximity to Johns Hopkins University, where the Hubble Space Telescope mission is headquartered. It was on view through March 29, 2015.
The Menil’s exhibition, “The Boundary of Life is Quietly Crossed,” features Robleto’s interest in the history of our knowledge of the human heartbeat. It was commissioned by the Menil and the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the arts at the University of Houston. The exhibition was on view at the Menil through January 4, 2015.
