All are welcome to a free public reception for the opening of Games Are Forbidden in the Labyrinth.
This exhibition by internationally recognized, Venezuelan-born artist Javier Téllez explores psychiatric confinement, surveillance architecture, and the game of chess as strategically interrelated systems. The exhibition’s two major works, Dürer’s Rhinoceros (2010), and Chess (2014), dislocate perception through reenactments of delirium. For more information visit sfai.edu/labyrinth.
