An Exhibition with Pedro Lasch


Meditations on the History of Time

M.S. Rau Antiques, New Orleans’ quintessential antiques and fine art destination, is pleased to announce its first-ever exhibition of contemporary art on the occasion of Prospect New Orleans’ citywide triennial of art. The 105-year- old gallery will act as an official venue for Prospect.4, where it will host Mexican-American artist Pedro Lasch for a solo show entitled Reflections on Time.

Reflections on Time is a site-specific installation that incorporates historical clocks and other objects from M.S. Rau’s collection in a constellation of pairings with reflective glass artworks produced by Pedro Lasch. The installation evokes richly layered meditations on the history of time, encompassing scientific, spiritual, and allegorical implications.
