Future Exhibitions at Gallery221

Dominique Labauvie: Warm-Up in Tandem

March 23 – May 7, 2020
Gallery221 | 2nd floor DLRC
Reception: Thursday, March 26, 5 – 8 p.m.
Performances and lecture to begin at 6 p.m.

Gallery221’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. Over the course of Warm-Up in Tandem, musicians and vocalists will be invited to enter the gallery and create sonic responses to the piece, taking musical cues from the shape and flow of the sculpture to produce an arrangement of sounds more akin to a warm-up exercise than a refined song.

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.
