Front Room: Dario Robleto

From November 16, 2014 — March 29, 2015

Looking like a cabinet of sea curiosities and feeling like a ballad, Dario Robleto’s exhibition reveals a burning heart.

Dario Robleto's Setlists for a Setting Sun weaves together the histories of recorded light and sound in a body of poetic sculptures, prints, and cut-paper works. The artist has drawn inspiration for the pieces from nautical history, space exploration, early sound recordings, and family legacies within American popular music.

The show debuts three works created by Robleto (American, born 1972) at Headlands Center of the Arts in Sausalito, CA, as part of its program to commission art from outstanding contemporary artists. These new works were inspired in part by the BMA's proximity to the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScl) on the campus of The Johns Hopkins University.
