Tony Matteli Artist Talk

Gold Calendar IconTuesday, October 4, 2022 at Noon

Tony Matelli (b. Chicago 1971) is an American artist working predominantly in the field of sculpture. The artist frequently focuses on themes of time, ambivalence, banality, and wonder. In Matelli’s work the physical laws of objects are often reversed, upended or atomized, and with these deft manipulations of matter and gravity come profound reorientations in perspective and ultimately, state of being. Tony’s work is in numerous public collections internationally, and recent solo exhibitions have been presented at the State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia; The Davis Museum, MA; Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, Germany and the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France. A mid-career survey, Tony Matelli: A Human Echo, premiered at the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark in 2012 and traveled to the Bergen Kunstmuseum, Norway on 2013. The artist lives and works in Brooklyn, and is represented by Marlborough Chelsea, New York. Located in Wilson Hall in Room 124
