Join BOX 13 ArtSpace on December 1st for the opening reception of three brand-new exhibits! Check out "From the Treehouse," "Earthly Bodies: The Houston Brick Archive," and "Neither Here Nor There" at this special event on Sunday beginning at 7:00 p.m.
BOX 13 is an artist-run nonprofit innovative environment for the creation and advancement of experimental contemporary art in Houston. BOX 13 artists create this environment through the offering of affordable workspaces for emerging and established artists, dedicating 4 interior spaces to the exhibition of artistic explorations, a window gallery for installations and an outdoor courtyard space.
The Front BOX will feature the exhibition "From the Treehouse.” This piece is based upon artist Elisabeth Mladenov's first contact with the Houston environment, having settled into what she describes as a treehouse next to the Menil Collection, as she shed control over both processes and result in her work through the use of automatic painting techniques.
The exhibition "Earthly Bodies: The Houston Brick Archive" in the Back BOX highlights a large collection of bricks salvaged from sites around Houston by artist Alexander Squier/Fondren Project. The exhibit presents an "archaeological theater" – a multifaceted research project that combines sculpture, maps, and other documents focusing on the physical qualities and histories of the bricks, which serve as a metaphor for change and for people, their migrations, and the diverse fabric of the world.
In the installation "Neither Here Nor There" in the Window BOX, Jasmine Zelaya explores the loss and gain and sense of insider vs. outsider of her experience as a daughter of immigrants, raised to assimilate, and as that of a woman of color with an adopted culture. This exhibit has been produced in collaboration with New Orleans-based artist Jacob Reptile.
