In a discussion of this exhibition, Dario Robleto said, “Survival is the driving theme of almost
all of my work. And when I say survival, I mean the very uniquely human solution to loss or
grief, but specifically in a creative way. In my work, I try to stress that it’s not about death or
loss as an end point. It’s about the creative response to loss, which to me is a human problem,
so it becomes philosophical because you can investigate humanity itself through this lens.”
Join us for an illustrated lecture by the artist, as he discusses his winding path to art, his working
methods, and his unique approach to materials. 

The Margaret (Dudie) Ash Lecture Series was established in 1976 in memory of this former
trustee. A dedicated volunteer, Margaret enriched the lives of many with her tireless devotion
to Art Center activities and promotion of the institution. This lecture series, named in her honor,
has kept her memory alive.
