Gallery Exhibition Opening: “The Path of Least Resistance” by Elisa Insua

July 15, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - July 16, 2021 @ 7:00 pm


Join us in person at the MFTA Gallery for the exhibition opening for artist Elisa Insua’s solo exhibition, “The Path of Least Resistance.” As MFTA’s Spring 2020 Artist-in-Residence, Elisa Insua has transformed buttons, beads, jewelry, electronics, and toys into elaborate large-scale assemblage works that examine excess and consumption in our society.

Born in Buenos Aires, Elisa Insua started her practice as a self-taught artist, creating assemblages and sculptures with discarded materials. In her work, Insua often explores concepts related to economics, overconsumption, and human insatiability. Her artwork has been shown across Argentina, Spain, Venezuela, Belgium, and the United Kingdom.

The exhibition opening will be hosted during three different time slots to accommodate social distancing. Masks must be worn at all times during your visit.

  • Thursday, July 15 – 4:00pm – 6:00pm
  • Thursday, July 15 – 6:00pm – 8:00pm
  • Friday, July 16 – 5:00pm – 7:00pm

Please select the date and time you would like to attend the gallery. We hope to see you there.
