Artist David Lamelas scheduled to attend.

Wednesday, April 3, 6:00 p.m. | THIS IS MY PLACE is a fictional documentary about the itinerant life and conceptual artwork of artist David Lamelas, whose sculpture Situación de cuatro placas de aluminio (Four Changeable Plaques) (1966), is currently on view in Endless at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA). Commissioned by the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA), the film—making its world premiere—features Lamelas interviewed by MCA’s Marilyn and Larry Fields Curator Carla Acevedo-Yates. Lamelas reflects on a life defined by migration between cultures and countries, and how those experiences shaped his artistic practice, which for decades has centered explorations of time and place. Post-screening conversation with Lamelas, Acevedo-Yates, and MCA Assistant Curator Nolan Jimbo.
