Expressions of the City: Reimagining the Local

Using the romantic allure of Marfa, Texas as a counterpoint, the exhibition, Expressions of the City: Re-imagining the Local, invites the viewer to examine and dissect their understanding of the city and to find a deeper awareness of their interaction with the urban landscape. In the same way Donald Judd’s minimalist works attract visitors to Marfa, the mystical skylines of major metropolises across the nation act as a symbol for the heart of the city, but what lies beneath? Is the ephemeral expression of graffiti a sign of social decline or are remnants of urban decay now considered a cultural commodity? The artists within the exhibition have taken to close observation, questioning ideas related to economics, permanence, preservation and the socio-political relationship we have to the history of a place over a period of time.

Featuring Texas Students artists: 

Jordan Bryan - University of Houston, Clear Lake

Rontaye Butler - University of Houston 

Kristin Moore - Recent MFA graduate Otis College of Art + Design; resides in Austin, Texas

Lauren Tompkins - University of North Texas

Ali Vanderhider - University of Texas, Austin

The opening is being generously supported by Kickin Kombucha and (512) Brewing
