In her first solo exhibition in Houston, Kapwani Kiwanga created two site-specific installations for the Moody, "Maya-Bantu" and "Dune." Both works will address linkages between trade and labor, as well as society and the environment. The "The Sand Recalls the Moon’s Shadow" exhibition also includes Kiwanga’s 2012 video, "Vumbi," which draws attention to the nuanced relationship between humans and the planet. Collectively, these works meditate on raw material as a primary resource, simultaneously in the context of cultural exploration and economic development.

The opening event will feature DJ Sun and complimentary food and drinks with support from Saint Arnold Brewing Company.
