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.

Intimate confession is a project
curated by Jennifer Teets
October 27, 2023—March 10, 2024
Intimate confession is a project is a group exhibition that considers transmission, intergenerational life, and cultural inheritance through the prism of intimacy and infrastructure. Through the work of eleven artists spanning generations and geographies, the exhibition thinks through infrastructure as an intimate holding cell, capable of affective and affirmative power.
Eiko spent four years of her childhood in a prefecture next to Fukushima. After the region was hit with multiple disasters including an earthquake, a tsunami, and the explosions of the Daiichi nuclear plant, Eiko visited the irradiated Fukushima five times with a historian and photographer William Johnston. Experiencing a deep sense of regret for human-made environmental disaster, Eiko danced alone hoping to use her body as a conduit to people who are far away and to future generations. Eiko has presented aspects of this project in exhibitions, a photo book, and a feature-length film. Here, she will perform live within an installation of moving image projections. A Body with Fukushima presents a powerful embodiment of grief, upset, and remorse while bringing together the present, past and the landscape of post-earthquake Fukushima through and with Eiko’s body. There will be an artist talk and Q&A following the performance.
