Installation

Shelter in Place: Keliy Anderson-Staley

SITE Gallery Houston presents the inaugural public installation of Keliy Anderson-Staley’s Shelter in Place.

This will be the first presentation of Keliy Anderson-Staley’s temporary sculptural structure, Shelter in Place.
The simple structure, sheathed in original tintype portraits of
hundreds of Houstonians, will be installed in an outdoor space under the
train shed at the Silos.

Each tintype plate is a powerful portrait of an individual and the
entire piece a portrait of the broader community. The structure is an
expression of the strength and resilience of Houston’s communities, but
also our collective fragility and vulnerability in the face of natural
and environmental catastrophe. Although the project has been in
development for a number of years, the project has taken on new
significance in the wake of Harvey, and many of the portraits have been
made since the storm.

The installation will only be up and open to the public for one week, so plan to see it while you can! Refreshments will be served at the opening reception. on April 21.

Shelter in Place was funded in part by the
City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance and by the Cynthia
Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts.

Opening Reception: Margin and Center

Exploring the edges of identities, geographies, disciplines and ideas.

Opening Reception from 5:30-8:00pm
Curator and Artists' Talks at 6:00pm
Exhibition on view: March 9 - April 29, 2018

Houston Center for Photography presents For Freedoms: Margin and Center

Margin and Center brings together several artists from around the world whose work explores the edges of identities, geographies, disciplines and ideas, and identifies—through various modes of seeing—physically, psychologically and culturally constructed separations that determine where we are supposed to go and who we are supposed to be. These divisions take the form of walls, bodies, histories, or, as when writer bell hooks—whose writing inspired the title of this exhibition—grew up in rural Kentucky, the train tracks that divided her town between black and white.
