Sebastian Errazuriz: The Beginning of the End
Roxana Q. Girand, President and CEO of Sebastian Capital, is pleased to announce that The Elizabeth Collective will be hosting Sebastian Errazuriz, the Chilean-born, New York-based artist, designer and activist. On view will be highlights from The Beginning of the End, his recent exhibition at CorpArtes Cultural Center in Santiago, Chile, where Errazuriz combined technology and art through augmented reality, 3D printing, scanning and modeling.
Running from May 1 through May 24, 2019 will be a series of Errazuriz’s sculptures curated by James Salomon of Salomon Contemporary. The Elizabeth Collective is located within a historic six-story townhouse, a one-time home of Elizabeth Taylor, recently restored and reimagined as a creative hub with a focus on art and design by Sebastian Capital.
Errazuriz’s work is a commentary on the repercussions of technology on today’s society. He predicts that within the next decade automation will displace 50% of current jobs creating a wave of social insurrection and global conflict. Designed as a warning of the upcoming transformation, The Beginning of the End features sculptures that depict the new mythology of characters shaping our future such as Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg. “We are excited to have the opportunity to debut these compelling works in the US by such a well-respected South American artist,” states Girand.
