BOX 13 ArtSpace is pleased to present three exhibitions opening December 1, 2018, 7 - 9 PM. On view 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. 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, presenting 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 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. An Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, December 1, 2019, from 7 - 9PM at BOX 13 ArtSpace, 6700 Harrisburg, Houston, TX 77011.

Mystic
Lyon Unveils a New Site-Specific Installation by Artist Cary Reeder

Reception:
September 1, 2018, 5-8pm

Exhibition
dates: September 1 - December 1, 2018

Artist
Talk and Workshop: Sunday, October 21, 2pm

 

MYSTIC
LYON is thrilled to present "I'm a Stranger Here" by
artist Cary Reeder, a new site-specific installation to be unveiled
on the corner of Lyons Avenue and Mystic Street.
The
installation will remain on view on the outside of the building from
September 1 through December 1, 2018 with a reception on Saturday,
September 1 from 6-9pm.


From
the artist: “
I’m
a Stranger Here
is
a site-specific window installation that takes a conceptual approach
to addressing questions about community resources and assumptions
that “strangers” make about neighborhoods that are lower income
or racially/ethnically different from their own.


This project stems
from my background in Urban Planning, which I have a graduate degree
in but only briefly pursued as a career. The field still interests
me: What resources are needed for communities to thrive? What
resources do communities have and which ones do they lack? What
assumptions do outsiders make about neighborhoods that have a
different income, racial, or ethnic makeup than theirs? What
assumptions do
I
make?


The
installation represents an abstracted visual “map” of community
resources in the Fifth Ward neighborhood surrounding the exhibition
space. It served as a way for me to be a little less of a stranger
and get to know a neighborhood that I my own assumptions about.”


Reeder
will be giving an artist's talk and accompanying workshop on Sunday,
October 21 at 2pm. The workshop topic is: How to Give an Artist's
Talk When You are an Introvert.

Park-SmART Precinct One - Arts & Culture Forum

Park-SmART Precinct One Arts & Culture Forum, an evening of conversation and drinks to celebrate the role of artists and the arts in creating compelling, welcoming, beautiful parks and open space for all.

Commissioner Rodney Ellis and Public Art and Design Director Reginald Adams from Harris County Precinct One invite you to:

Park-SmART Precinct One Arts & Culture Forum, an evening of conversation and drinks to celebrate the role of artists and the arts in creating compelling, welcoming, beautiful parks and open space for all. 

Park-SmART Precinct One is part of a larger effort, Park-Smart Precinct One, through which the Precinct is partnering with The Trust for Public Land, Houston Parks Board, and Asakura Robinson on an ambitious plan to build community resilience by increasing equitable access to parks and trails. 

Arts and cultural engagement are essential to creating parks and greenways that are truly accessible and welcoming—parks and greenways that reflect the histories, identities, and aspirations of local residents. We want artists to be active voices in the shaping the plan and in helping us determine how funding, partnerships, and programming can help make art a core asset in Precinct One’s parks. 

As members of our vibrant local arts community, we hope that you will come share your ideas as you enjoy a drink on us!

As part of this event we will be asking:
• What role can artists play in increasing equity and community resilience in Precinct One?
• What kinds of parks-based arts and cultural programming and engagement are already happening locally?
• What are the specific places and contexts, in parks and the public realm, where can artists contribute more?
• What can the Precinct do to create more opportunities for artists to share their ideas and work in parks and open space?

Please spread the word and we hope to see you there!
