Upcoming Exhibit

State Lines

September 20 – November 2, 2018 

Opening reception Thursday, September 20 4:30–6pm

State Lines presents four artists who address challenges of interpersonal identity. Appropriating colloquial materials and mythologies, each of the artists combines personal contexts with strong associations to Texas and the language of modernism. State Lines is curated by Hilary Hunt and Arturo Palacios of DEASIL (Houston, TX,) who are proud to offer works by The Bridge Club, Buster Graybill, Liss LaFleur, and Ana Fernandez.

State Lines is a play on words not limited to geographic boundaries, but focused on the frontiers of selfdom. Like its geopolitical homonym, a cognitive “state line” can be fuzzy, arbitrary, obsolete, or guarded; it can represent a dissonance or an harmonic fluidity. This exhibition brings together works from artists who straddle, subvert, and stretch the historical and cultural signifiers attached to heritage, gender, sexuality, and geography.

The public is invited to attend the opening reception and exhibition on Southwestern University’s campus at the Sarofim School of Fine Arts Gallery.
