Location: Gene Siskel Film Center


This Is My Place is a fictional documentary about the itinerant life and conceptual artwork of artist David Lamelas, whose sculpture Situacíon de cuatro placas de aluminio (Four Changeable Plaques) (1966), is currently on view in Endless. Commissioned by the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA), the film features Lamelas interviewed by 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.

Lamelas speaks with Endless curator Nolan Jimbo after the screening.

ASL interpretation is provided for this event.
