Carlos Dorrien

Professor Emeritus of Art


Sculptor known for public installations and sculptural work in stone.

Carlos Dorrien was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, later studying at the Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA and the Massachusetts College of Art (MassArt) in Boston, MA. He is well-known for his large stone sculptural installations, many of which are installed outdoors, in direct relationship with the landscape around them. The idea of the remnant or trace is important to his practice, often incorporated into his works either explicitly or in the metaphorical or inspirational sense. He has many installations around the Greater Boston region, including works in the sculpture park at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, MA, in and around subway stations of Boston and Cambridge's MBTA system, and in Harvard Square in Cambridge.
