"Carlos Mollura: Inflated Interventions"
2002-06-15 until 2002-08-18
Bellevue Art Museum
Bellevue, WA, USA United States of America

The inflated sculpture of Argentine-born, Los Angeles-based artist, Carlos Mollura will be found in multiple locations in the Museum. Look for them on the exterior terraces of the building, in the Forum and in the windows from June 15 – August 18, 2002. This exhibition—or more appropriately, intervention—presents Mollura’s work in the context of layers of understanding—seduction, play, memory, and decay—that encourage viewers to reach beyond their initial attraction and delve deeper into the rich myriad of associations and references suggested by his compelling forms. It is the connection to these broader universal experiences that makes Mollura’s work simultaneously accessible and challenging.

Mollura’s sculpture reveals itself in layers—much like a new toy that is packaged underneath cardboard and shrink wrap. The initial attraction to his work may come as a result of the shiny plastic newness, but over time, the viewer fills the simple material object with associations and memories.

Carlos Mollura: Inflatables was curated by Ginger Gregg Duggan, BAM Curator. Carlos Mollura is represented by the James Harris Gallery in Seattle.

Sustained Museum support comes from the Corporate Council for the Arts/Arts Fund, King County Arts Commission Hotel/Motel Tax Revenues, Washington State Arts Commission, Standing Ovation and Bellevue Art Museum members and annual fund donors.
