Publisher's description: The renowned Argentine conceptual artist David Lamelas (born 1946) has an expansive oeuvre of sensory, restive, and evocative work. This book, published to coincide with the first monographic exhibition of the artist's work in the United States, offers an incisive look into Lamelas's art. The guiding analytic theme is the artist's adaptability to place and circumstance, which invariably influences his creative production. Lamelas left Argentina in the mid-1960s to study at Saint Martin's in London. Since then, he has divided his time among various cities. While the typical narrative invoked about artists like Lamelas is one of ''internationalism,'' his nomadic movement from one place or conceptual framework to the next has always been more ''postnational'' than ''international.''
