Free Gallery Talk + Lunch: Javier Sánchez Martínez on “Hilary Lloyd”

July 27, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



“Hilary Lloyd’s U.S. debut at the Blaffer Art Museum in Houston is an object lesson in … casual elegance. And she’s tossed in a few wicked turns of humor to let us know she doesn’t take herself too seriously.” — Arts + Culture Texas

Get more out of Blaffer’s acclaimed exhibition Hilary Lloyd with a free gallery talk by Blaffer curatorial fellow Javier Sánchez Martínez, who organized the exhibition. Then, keep the conversation going over lunch, which is on us!

About the exhibition

Comprised of various video installations, handcrafted objects, and architectural interventions, Hilary Lloyd’s first U.S. solo museum exhibition presents new work created specifically to be experienced in Blaffer Art Museum’s upstairs galleries. Swerving between abstract imagery and glimpses of the world, the exhibition explores light as both a medium and subject of digital technologies and draws attention to the possibilities and limits of visual perception.
