Artist Talk: A Conversation with Adriana Varejão for "Kindred Spirits" at Lehmann Maupin
Before she takes on the Aquatic Stadium at the upcoming Rio Olympics, Adriana Varejão is exploring how Native American art has influenced 20th-century minimalism in her sixth show at Lehmann Maupin.
In the 29 self-portraits that make up Kindred Spirits, sparse lines coexist with a variety of Native American face paintings, while her Mimbres series consists of a series of oil paintings that reference designs of the Mimbres people who once dwelled in the American Southwest. Both series pay tribute to overlooked influences, and the need to recognize origins.
