Artist Talk: Javier Téllez

Javier Téllez will be in conversation with Joseph del Pesco (Kadist Art Foundation) and Hesse McGraw (SFAI) in conjunction with his solo exhibition, Games Are Forbidden in the Labyrinth, in the Walter and McBean Galleries. Their conversation will unravel issues of psychiatric confinement, surveillance, and power in relation to the exhibition. Games Are Forbidden in the Labyrinth is on view at SFAI September 9–December 13, 2014.

Javier Téllez was born in 1969 in Valencia, Venezuela. Téllez’s work has been shown nationally and internationally in major exhibitions including dOCUMENTA (13) (2012); Whitney Biennial, New York (2008); and Venice Biennale (2003 and 2001). A retrospective of his work opens at Kunsthaus Zürich in October 2014. He currently lives and works in New York.
