"Love is a House That Even Death Can’t Knock Down" is a photo-based exhibition that celebrates the sacredness of Black life through the veneration of family archives. This group exhibition is organized by and features the work of mk, Irene Antonia Diane Reece, and Jamie Robertson.

Each artist works with their respective family archives as the grounding element of their creative practice. Collectively, their works address themes of life, death, and memory in relation to a Southern Black experience. The Gulf Coast landscape connects the creative practices of these three families and, while each uses photographic imagery, the exhibition is a multi-sensory experience including smell, sound, and installation elements.

Together, mk, Reece, and Robertson explore relationships that folds time and space, part of the larger narrative and documentation of Black subjectivity in Texas and the Gulf Coast.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until December 10.
