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 sponsored and supported by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts. A portion of this project was created in the Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern in collaboration with Buffalo Bayou Partnership.
This exhibition focuses on the critically understudied graphic work of José Clemente Orozco (1883-1949), one of “Los tres grandes” of Mexican muralism.
Under the leadership of Noe Marmolejo, Jazz Orchestra is the premier big band for the Moores School of Music. In addition to performing two concerts per semester at the school, the band regularly appears outside of the school for music festivals, community outreach, and events with Houston performance societies such as DaCamera and Miller Outdoor Theater. The Jazz Orchestra has also performed at the Texas Music Educators Convention, the Katy Jazz Festival, the Colorado Music Educators Convention, the Texas Jazz Festival (Corpus Christi), and the University of Northern Colorado Jazz Festival.
