Art at Americas Society is presenting Interior with Landscapes, the first solo exhibition and mid-career survey of the Argentine artist Alejandra Seeber in New York. Many of Seeber's paintings explore the tension between representation and abstraction.


The artist utilizes bold color and gesture to depict liminal spaces within built and domestic environments. Later works veer further into abstraction, implementing visual devices like Rorschach drawings or knit grids to structure the composition. This exhibition is curated by Aimé Iglesias Lukin, Director and Chief Curator of Art at Americas Society.

The show pairs Seeber's paintings with the artist's recent explorations of the built landscape through the medium of installation. This survey of her work is organized around a playable golf course installed inside the gallery space, in which visitors will be invited to play as they walk through the show. The golf obstacles become active sculptures in the exhibition, creating porous boundaries between artwork and audience. This playful environment manifests the explorations of edges, doorways, windows, and borders in the artist's paintings. As they play, visitors will be able to trace Seeber's artistic trajectory and see how her interventions into the form and practice of painting continue to this day.

Alejandra Seeber, born in Buenos Aires in 1969, lives and works in New York. In her works, Seeber explores domestic spaces, which she transforms into dynamic abstract paintings. The artist draws inspiration from alternative rock, stage designs, musical performances, urban culture, digital software, textiles, and crafts. The book Picture This, edited by Hatje Kantz in 2019 offers a comprehensive view of her work. Some of her projects and exhibitions include: Danza Perfumi (Barro, Buenos Aires, 2023); A oJO (Barro, Buenos Aires, 2021); Fuera de serie (Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, 2021); Rather Ripped (Häusler Contemporary Munich, Austria, 2018); Getaways (Häusler Contemporary, Lustenau, Austria, 2018); Ultramar: Fontana, Kuitca, Seeber, Tessi (Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, 2017); Caza (The Bronx Museum of the Arts, 2016) Autoamerican (Barro, Buenos Aires, 2015); Cuadro por cuadro (Miau Miau, Buenos Aires, 2014); Yes Yes  (Häusler Contemporary, Munich, 2011); Tutti Frutti (Häusler Contemporary, Zurich, 2011); and  Dialogville (Fundación PROA, Buenos Aires, 2010); Bienal do Mercosul (Porto Alegre, 2009), among others.
