As a spectator to claustrophobic psychological and physical states growing up in San Antonio’s Southside, Guzman’s monumental paintings are a byproduct of experiences, recordings, and environmental reflections. The artist abstracts the human figure to reflect the harm endured by the body, and the unrecognizable transformation brought on by years of punishment, addiction, relapse, and self-destruction.
Tania Candiani: Lifeblood
September 22—November 19, 2023
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.
A world premiere embodied storytelling event that exemplifies the expression, “leap, and the net shall appear.”
Join our incoming MFA Acting cohort for an ensemble-building project like no other. In just over 100 hours of rehearsal, an entire play without words will be conceived, devised, and performed. Exploring the vocabulary of the body, the company will embark on a quest to find the miraculous in the mundane.
What insights will we discover? How many characters and lifetimes will we experience? What story will emerge from the culmination of our efforts? Come join us, and find out.
