Luis Gispert’s “Aqua Regia” works—two of which are in the Art Center exhibition—defy classification, hovering between painting, sculpture, and collage. The series, titled after the only substance that can dissolve gold, features gold chains sparkling from a bed of glittering stone. These largescale works reference action painting, musical culture, and the surprising ways the most humble of materials can meld with the most precious.

Charles Lindsay’s installations combine antiques, plant and animal matter, refuse from the space program, and sound, video and light into “field stations” on another planet. What will humans take with them as they explore the universe? Alongside survival gear, do we export our cultural ideas, virtues, or vices? Lindsay’s work blends art, science, and philosophy into immersive environments that speculate on these questions.
