Mexican artist Sebastián is the creator of monumental urban sculptures that combine the vivid colors of pop art with the abstract forms of minimalism—at maximal scale. Active since the 1960s, Sebastián has made more than 200 steel and concrete sculptures, including colossal Gates (Puertas) in his home country of Mexico; city symbols in Sakai and Kadoma, Japan; and the famous Caballito in Mexico City. In an illuminating lecture co-sponsored by USC Architecture, Sebastián will discuss his decades-long career, and how mathematical and scientific concepts inform his artistic practice. Admission is free. Reservations required. RSVP beginning Wednesday, October 17, at 9 a.m.
