In Greek, the word entelecheia describes the dynamic transformation of idea into reality. That’s the inspiration behind Carlos Estévez: Entelechy, Works from 1992 to 2018. Opening this Saturday, January 26, at the Tucson Museum of Art, the mid-career retrospective presents more than 70 paintings, drawings, installations, and sculptures by Estévez, spanning a quarter-century of work.
Guest-curated by Carol Damian, former director and chief curator of Miami’s Frost Art Museum, the exhibition explores many of the artist’s recurring themes, from human spirituality to the structures of the body. In addition to a preview on Friday evening, January 25, events on Saturday include a conversation between Estévez and Damian at 1 p.m., followed by a book signing to celebrate publication of a major monograph about the artist.
