BOX 13 ArtSpace is pleased to present three special exhibitions. The exhibition Earthly Bodies: The Houston Brick Archive in the Back BOX highlights a large collection of bricks salvaged from sites around Houston by artist Alexander Squier/Fondren Project.
Alexander Squier presents an archaeological theater—a multifaceted research project that combines sculpture, maps, and other documents focusing on the physical qualities and histories of the bricks, which serve as a metaphor for change and for people, their migrations, and the diverse fabric of the world.
In the Front BOX, the exhibition From the Treehouse was born upon artist Elisabeth Mladenov’s first contact with the Houston environment, having settled into what she describes as a tree house next to the Menil, as she shed control over both process and result in her work through the use of automatic painting techniques.
In the installation Neither Here Nor There in the Window BOX, Jasmine Zelaya explores the loss and gain and sense of insider vs. outsider of her experience as a daughter of immigrants, raised to assimilate, and as that of a woman of color with an adopted culture, in collaboration with New Orleans based artist Jacob Reptile. The exhibitions continue through February 2, 2019.
At The Augusta Apartments in Houston, Texas, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
