Opening Reception—Tania Candiani: Lifeblood

Friday, September 22, 2023
Artist & Curator Remarks: 7:00pm

Blaffer Art Museum
FREE and open to the public

Histories and lives embedded in the land – and particularly the waterways that have alternately built and destroyed Houston over time – will be the subject of a newly commissioned, multi-disciplinary work by Mexican artist Tania Candiani. In her past work, Candiani has worked across a spectrum of media and practices to explore the intersections between people, place, labor and industry. In so doing, Candiani initiates explorations and collaborations that convene communal meditations on the past via music, architecture, and craft, with an emphasis on early technologies and vernacular practices of record-keeping. Her work in Houston will be developed out of an intermittent eight-month residency generously sponsored and supported by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts.

Tania Candiani: Lifeblood is on view at Blaffer Art Museum September 22—November 19, 2023.
