First U.S. Solo Museum Exhibit for Spanish Textile Artist Teresa Lanceta Slated for The Meadows Museum

The Meadows Museum, SMU, in partnership with Fundación ARCO, will debut the inaugural solo exhibition in the United States featuring Teresa Lanceta from Feb. 18 through June 16. Lanceta becomes the second artist to participate in the MAS: Meadows/ARCO Artist Spotlight program, initiated in 2021 to spotlight contemporary Spanish artists and amplify their recognition in the U.S.

Lanceta’s Intricate Textile Art

Renowned for her intricate and vibrant textile creations, Lanceta was honored with the Premio Nacional de Artes Plásticas (National Award for Fine Arts) in 2023 for her significant contributions to Spain’s creative landscape. The exhibition at The Meadows Museum will feature nine of Lanceta’s works, including several large-format pieces spanning from 1992 to 2020. The selection aims to showcase Lanceta’s diverse influences and thematic explorations, ranging from homage to 15th-century Spanish carpets to contemporary reflections on the Raval neighborhood of Barcelona.

MAS Program: Bridging Artistic Boundaries

The MAS: Meadows/ARCO Artist Spotlight program, a six-year initiative launched in 2019, focuses on spotlighting exceptional contemporary Spanish artists who have limited recognition in the United States. Lanceta’s selection underscores the program’s commitment to fostering cultural dialogue and international artistic exchanges. The program, which commenced with an exhibition of works by conceptual artist Ignasi Aballí in 2021, offers a platform for artists to showcase their work at The Meadows Museum.

Collaboration and Recognition

Amanda W. Dotseth, Director of the Meadows Museum, expressed enthusiasm for presenting Lanceta’s work at SMU and in North Texas, emphasizing Lanceta’s dedication to weaving as an art form and its global cultural impact. The collaboration between The Meadows Museum and Fundación ARCO exemplifies a shared commitment to promoting artistic diversity and fostering transatlantic artistic connections.
