Houston,
TX 77004


Project Row Houses (PRH) will celebrate the closing of Round
49: Penumbras: Sacred Geometries with
a party on Sunday, June 9, 2019. In keeping with the Round theme, the closing
party will feature live music from a Latin Jazz band, as well as street food
and drinks inspired by the Afro-Latin Diaspora. Third Ward chef Shakti Baum of
Etta’s Kitchen will be leading culinary efforts for the event.

Round 49 was co-curated by PRH Curator and Programs Director
Ryan N. Dennis and cultural practitioner William Cordova. The Round explores
the ideology of sacred geometries to form structures and landscapes that allude
to the body, intent and consciousness. Curated in connection with the Latino
Art Now! Conference, the Round 49 installations brought attention to Houston’s
Afro-Latino diaspora.

 Exhibiting artists include: Yanira Collado (Dominican
Republic), Leticia Contreras (Afromexican), Aramis O’Reilly (Cuba), Charo Oquet
(Dominican Republic), Onajide Shabaka (United States), Juana Valdez (Cuba). In
conjunction with Round 49, MacArthur genius grant recipient Okwui Okpokwasili
and Peter Born utilized one of the Art Houses for their installation titled Sitting on a Man’s Head.
