Renata Lucas

September 2020, Dia:Chelsea

Overview

Dia:Chelsea will reopen in September 2020 with a multipart commission exploring issues of urban transformation by Brazilian artist Renata Lucas, culminating a five-year engagement with Dia. Lucas is known for creating site-specific interventions that question social, cultural, and economic exchanges within the urban landscape. Her Dia commission will examine Chelsea's shifting architectural histories by reimagining how openness functions in buildings and by layering different street-level vernaculars. This will be Lucas’s first institutional commission in the United States.
