Join artist Bosco Sodi in conversation with curator Dakin Hart as they discuss Sodi’s ongoing solo exhibitions at Kasmin and Pioneer Works in New York as well as the publication of a recent monograph by Rizzoli Electa.

Bosco Sodi (b. 1971, México City) invokes an emotive power from the essential simplicity of his materials and the vivid pigments he sources. Sodi has described his creative process as a “controlled chaos” that makes “something that is completely unrepeatable.” Focusing on material exploration, the creative gesture, and the spiritual connection between the artist and his work, Sodi seeks to transcend conceptual barriers. His works become memories and relics symbolic of the artist’s conversation with the raw material that brought them into creation.
Dakin Hart is Senior Curator at The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum (Long Island City, NY), where he oversees the Museum’s exhibitions, collections, Catalogue Raisonné, Archives, and public programming, and has the daily good fortune of collaborating with Isamu Noguchi in absentia.
