Today’s Norms Are Tomorrow’s Luxuries
Luis Alfonso Villalobos

February 17—May 13, 2018


The first US solo exhibition of Guadalajara-based artist Luis Alfonso Villalobos features painting, video, and installation that opens an inquiry into the functions of architecture and art, while also expanding into ideas of history and place. A large-scale installation integrates paintings within a complex built environment. With references to Modern architecture and design, Villalobos brings new considerations to the ambition of artists to merge art with life and nature with architecture.

The exhibition is the latest installment of SMoCA’s Architecture + Art series that presents ground-breaking projects by individuals whose work explores and challenges the boundaries between architecture and art.

Organized by Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.

Sponsored by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Walter and Karla Goldschmidt Foundation, SMITHGROUP JJR, CALA Alliance (Celebración Artística de las Américas), and Museo de Arte de Zapopan (MAZ), Jalisco, Mexico.
