On view for just five weeks this summer, the Hood's installation of Burning as It Were a Lamp (2013) introduces Miami-based artist Enrique Martínez Celaya to the community. This immersive installation consists of two paintings, a weeping bronze boy, and mirrors. The work only fully reveals itself when the viewer enters—and is reflected in—the mirrored space. Martínez Celaya is in residence at Dartmouth for the month of July and will present both a public lecture and a gallery talk in conjunction with his visit.
This exhibition was organized by the Hood Museum of Art and generously supported by the Harrington Gallery Fund.
Curated by Enrique Martínez Celaya, artist / Juliette Bianco, Deputy Director
