UT Visual Arts Center (VAC)

November 18 - December 10, 2016

As gayness enters the mainstream, assimilation to white heteronormativity becomes increasingly privileged over the voices of trans and POC members in the LGBTQ+ community." Featuring art by Ryan Hawk, E. Jane, The Highest Closet (Bug Davidson, Creighton Baxter, Hayley Morgenstern, Jessica Borusky, Sarah Hill), and Nabeela Vega.

Tania Mouraud: Everyday Ogres

UT Visual Arts Center (VAC)

September 23 - December 10, 2016

An exhibition of new video works by Tania Mouraud. "Commissioned by the Visual Arts Center, Mouraud traveled to Texas in June 2016 to film oil refineries along the Houston Ship Channel: sites that represent the dangerous monumentality and surreal everydayness surrounding energy use and production in the United States. Filmed at night, the installation captures a haunting vision of metal cities filled with toxic smoke and threatening power."
