Analia Saban will give a comprehensive lecture about her art practice during the last 16 years, since her days as a graduate student until today. Through her work, she will speak about her interest in materiality, technology, and how the history of materials influences Art History.

This lecture is made possible by a collaboration between the School of Art Visiting Artist and Lecture Series and the University of Arizona Museum of Art exhibition The Art of Food: From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation.

Analia Saban dissects and reconfigures traditional notions of painting, often using the medium of paint as the subject itself. Blurring the lines between painting and sculpture, imagery and objecthood, her work frequently includes plays on art historical references and traditions. Paintings expand to sculptural forms and sculptures are presented in two dimensions, using the process of trial and error with new techniques and technology. Her unconventional methods such as unweaving paintings, laser-burning wood and canvas and molding forms in acrylic paint remain central to her practice as she continues to explore art-making processes and materials in relation to her daily experience. Dealing with issues of fragility, balance, technique and experimentation, Saban’s connection with everyday objects is at the forefront of her investigation of tangible materials and the metaphysical properties of artwork.

Born in 1980 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Saban currently lives and works in Los Angeles. She received a BFA in Visual Arts from Loyola University in New Orleans in 2001, followed by an MFA in New Genres at the University of California in Los Angeles in 2005. Saban’s works are represented in the collections of the Hammer Museum at UCLA, Museum of Contemporary Art, and Los Angeles County Museum of Art in Los Angeles; Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College in New York; Norton Museum of Art in Florida; Centre Pompidou in Paris, Israel Museum in Jerusalem, among others.


The School of Art focuses on bringing renowned and diverse artists and scholars from around the world to our campus. These visitors bring their own unique influences to the program by engaging with community members, students, and faculty through salons, lectures, and exhibitions.
