Lines Drawn: Exhibition Opening & Reception
Friday, September 22, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join us for the opening reception of Lines Drawn, a project that explores how artists reimagine, disrupt and question received notions of borders and boundaries. By addressing issues of immigration, nationalism, equity and human rights through their work, the artists encourage us to contemplate the many barriers in our own lives as social constructions of power.
Set within the current context of national and global political and social crises, Lines Drawn also offers a forum to consider how the complexities and controversies of our time can be addressed through art. The project includes an exhibition of prints, zines, video, and installation work; zine and poster making workshops; and live performances, readings and public conversations.
Participating artists include Jorge Galvan & John Pluecker (Houston), Margaret Griffith (Los Angeles), Khaled Jarrar (Tucson), Pedro Lasch (Durham), Phillip Pyle II (Houston); Henry Sanchez (Houston), Just Seeds, and workshops, performances and public programs by Keelin Burrows and Travis Smith (in collaboration with the Printing Museum), Carrie Schneider (in collaboration with Arts Take Action Houston), Sara Uribe (in collaboration with John Pluecker), ZineFest Houston, and the Houston Cinema Arts Festival. The exhibition also includes a curated Zine Library with selections of activist zines from across North America.
Lines Drawn is curated by Xandra Eden, Executive Director & Chief Curator, DiverseWorks.
