Boesky West opens ‘Tropical Molecule’ with Brazil’s Hugo França and Thiago Rocha Pitta

Staff report

Marianne Boesky’s Aspen gallery will open a new exhibition featuring works by designer Hugo França and artist Thiago Rocha Pitta today.

Distinct in their conceptual and aesthetic approaches, Rocha Pitta and França are united by a shared commitment to engaging with and honoring the natural environment, especially in their home country of Brazil.

The show opens today, with a reception running from 6 to 8 p.m. and will be on view through March 31.

It will include França’s characteristic sculptural furniture alongside a selection of Rocha Pitta’s watercolors, frescos and photographs. A new sculpture by Rocha Pitta also will be installed on the exterior of the Spring Street gallery. Together, the works, which are being shown together for the first time, capture the blurring boundaries between art and design and highlight nature as a powerful source of inspiration across discipline and time.
