On View

Elijah Barrett: Rockport

Thursday,  7.19.18   |   5–9 pm
"Rockport is Austin-based artist Elijah Barrett's account of the weeks and months after Hurricane Harvey swept through the community of Rockport, Texas and the surrounding area. On its surface, this group of photographs takes the form of a conventional photo essay, but it preserves what might otherwise be considered the outtakes or rejects, generating a retelling that is interpretive and diaristic as much as it is documentary. The photographs explore seeing and perceiving disaster, both the impulse to shield one's eyes from what is overwhelming and the strain to see hard realities more clearly."

2018 Student Art Exhibition

Salidas y Entradas | Exits and Entrances

May 31 through August 10, 2018
"In the work of artists Jessica Hankey and Erin Johnson, theatricality is a means of enlarging the self and creating new realities. In their multi-channel video installation Salidas y Entradas | Exits and Entrances, participants from three of El Paso’s senior centers explore the boundaries between rehearsal, improvisation, performance, and critique - traversing the spectrum from the permissible and everyday to the extraordinary or false. With the senior center – a site of social contact, care and collectivity – as a stage, the performers take up and play with social, political and geographical imaginaries."

Made in Texas!

July 13 through September 9, 2018
"The 25 quilts of the Made in Texas touring exhibition celebrate the pioneering spirit, natural beauty, and artistic talents of the Lone Star State. From a first-time quilter to prizewinning artists, the makers in this comprehensive exhibition reside in all regions of Texas."
