The Blaffer Art Museum is proud to present the exhibition Standing In by Jamaica-born, New York-based artist Paul Anthony Smith who makes photo-based works that push back against the medium’s inherently predatory dimensions while simultaneously introducing a network of added layers to navigate.

Leslie Martinez: The Secrecy of Water

The Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houston is proud to present the first solo museum exhibition of work by the Dallas-based artist Leslie Martinez.

Martinez (they/them/their) creates immersive, spellbinding paintings that explore ideas of place, climate, landscape, and personhood through unconventional methods of applying and interlaying various materials, textures, and hues on canvas. Their signature style of abstract painting features viscerally tactile and spatial atmospheres created with physical ingredients like fabric rags, recycled clothing, and crushed stone that reveal discordant visual intersections of destruction and emergence.

Jacolby Satterwhite: We Are In Hell When We Hurt Each Other

For over a decade, Jacolby Satterwhite has used 3D animation, sculpture, performance, painting, and photography to create fantastical, labyrinthine universes. Exploring the themes of public space, the body, ritual, and community, Satterwhite draws from an extensive set of references guided by queer theory, Modernist tropes, and video game languages to challenge conventions of Western art through a personal and political lens. An equally significant influence is his late mother, Patricia Satterwhite, who lived with schizophrenia and made ethereal vocal recordings as well as drawings and diagrams for visionary household products throughout Satterwhite’s childhood. His mother’s work often serves as the source material within a decidedly complex structure of memory and mythology.

Condition Report Workshop

Led by Michael Guidry, Public Art UHS Curator, this workshop is designed specifically for emerging professionals and scholars affiliated with the University of Houston Art History graduate program. Most institutions have protocols for receiving and loaning objects. A fundamental practice is the composition of a Condition Report. How does one systematically account for an object’s physical condition and why is this done? Michael Guidry has long experience with this practice and will lead the workshop.
