Warm Up: In Tandem
Gallery221 | 2nd floor DLRC
August 17 – October 22, 2020
Gallery221@HCC’s Warm Up: In Tandem is a solo exhibition of work by Dominique Labauvie (b. 1948 in Strasbourg, France) featuring a large, site-specific sculpture and a selection of prints published by Bleu Acier Inc. Labauvie’s rigid, yet lyrical lines remind the viewer of the gallery space’s own role as an instrument for artists—a vessel for play and practice as well as a tool for showcasing finished work.
Originally set to open in mid-March, the exhibition was delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis and extended into the fall. A virtual exhibition reception was held on May 21, 2020, with Dominique Labauvie, Erika Greenberg-Schneider, Soprano Esther Labauvie, and Dee Moses, principal double-bass in The Florida Orchestra. During the event, Esther Labauvie and Dee Moses shared a virtual performance of Dido’s Lament, composed by Henry Purcell (1688) and arranged by Gilda Lyons (2017). You can view both the performance and the Warm Up: In Tandem reception online.
Labauvie is an internationally renowned artist living and working in Tampa, FL. He has had notable solo exhibitions at the Tampa Museum of Art and the Leepa Rattner Museum of Art, and his work is in public collections at the National Collection of Contemporary Art in France, the Mead Art Museum in Amherst, MA, and the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, FL among many others. He is represented by Bleu Acier Inc.\
