MCASD presents Tristano di Robilant from December 16, 2016 through April 30, 2017 at the Museum’s downtown location.
Get the first look at this new exhibition on December 15 during Downtown at Sundown from 5 to 8 PM.
Tristano di Robilant features glass, metal, and ceramic sculptures that balance geometric forms with light and color. Di Robilant, who works in close collaboration with master artisans in Italy, creates elegant sculptures that highlight the particular qualities of his materials. These works are acutely attuned to the world around them, with translucent surfaces that play with light and reflection. Their irregular shapes are at once surprising and mesmerizing. The sculptures’ playful forms are often paired with enigmatic titles that borrow from a range of literary, philosophical, and historical influences.
In the month following the opening of this exhibition, di Robilant will remain in San Diego as an artist in residence at MCASD, as he develops his next body of work.
