Concentrations 61 is the first solo museum exhibition for Runo Lagomarsino, a conceptual artist of Italian and Argentine descent who lives and works in Malmö, Sweden, and São Paulo, Brazil. Join DMA curator Katherine Brodbeck as she talks with Lagomarsino about the exhibition and how it relates to his other work.
Concentrations 61 spans two galleries and features new commissions and previous works that have been specifically reformatted for the DMA. Transforming everyday objects and phrases into historically referential works of art, Lagomarsino considers the unstable nature of national identities, histories of imperialism, and political turmoil in the United States.
