Video Now Online: "Sculpture. Simulacrum. Ritual."

Fantastic to be able to share the stunning talk at the Banatao Auditorium on October 17th, 2016 on “Sculpture. Simulacrum. Ritual.” by Tom Sachs. Described by Emma Allen for the New Yorker as a “mix of mad scientist, obsessive tinkerer, cult guru, taskmaster general, starry-eyed theoretician, and workout champion,” Tom Sachs is one of today’s most inspiring and influential sculptors. Best known for elaborate and transformative re-creations of various Modern icons, re-creations that are masterpieces of engineering and design, Sachs’ work confronts capitalist culture through bricolage. Check it out!

We were thrilled to host Tom Sachs at our first Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium lecture of the 2016-2017 season on October 17th! A full house packed into the Banatao Auditorium of Sutardja Dai Hall, and were rewarded for their efforts with stickers from Tom's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts show!
