Gabriel Martinez: Everything Turns Away Quite Leisurely

Blaffer Art Museum

October 27 - January 27, 2018

"Houston-based Chicano artist, educator and performer Gabriel Martinez digs into the relationship between art, public space and collective memory in order to uncover lost social histories. Over the last 15 years, Martinez has established a set of ongoing gestures based on his interactions with American cities, including urban guerrilla interventions, gathering and repurposing street debris and re-appropriations of public semiotic codes."

Sergio Prego: Rose-colored Drift/To the Students

Blaffer Art Museum

October 27 - January 27, 2018

"New York-based artist Sergio Prego creates unfamiliar perceptual and spatial situations in order to examine contemporary realms of experience.  His sculptural devices specifically created for the galleries, including inflatable structures, transform the pre-existing spatial and discursive context of the art institution so as to shape experiences beyond our conventional matrix of attitudes, habits and beliefs."
