Project Row Houses presents "Round 49: penumbras: sacred geometries" opening reception
Project Row Houses will unveil its latest Artist Round, "Round 49: penumbras: sacred geometries," co-curated by PRH Curator and Programs Director Ryan N. Dennis and cultural practitioner william cordova. The Round explores the ideology of sacred geometries to form structures, landscape and allude to the body, intent and consciousness. "Round 49: penumbras: sacred geometries" was curated in connection with the Latino Art Now!, and the installations will bring attention to Houston’s Afro-Latino diaspora.
Exhibiting artists include Yanira Collado (Dominican Republic), Leticia Contreras (Afromexican), Aramis O’Reilly (Cuba), Charo Oquet (Dominican Republic), Onajide Shabaka (United States), Juana Valdez (Cuba). In conjunction with Round 49, MacArthur genius grant recipient Okwui Okpokwasili and Peter Born will utilize one of the Art Houses for their installation titled Sitting on a Man’s Head.
Guests will have the opportunity to hear from the artists about their individual practices and the inspiration behind their installation during Artists’ Talks. To support neighborhood and economic development, PRH will also host a family-friendly market showcasing a variety of goods and services from Third Ward vendors.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until June 9.
