Between Love & Madness: Mexican Comic Art from the 1970s
Organized by Christopher Sperandio, in collaboration with students from Practical Curation, 
Rice University
January 18 - March 25, 2018
O'Quinn Gallery

Wildly popular in Mexico, the art of micro-cuentos, or "mini-tales," are little known internationally. Beginning in the 1960s and continuing through the mid-seventies, these idiosyncratic Mexican comic books, measuring three by four and a half inches, present genre stories that carry subtle political critique. Between Love & Madness is comprised of approximately 380 works, including original interior art, original painted cover art, and ephemera.

Cavnar Gallery
Where Are They Taking Us To? is an exhibition based on the eponymously titled graphic novel by Augusto Mora, a comic artist based in Mexico City. Where Are They Taking Us To? attempts to create a timeline of and framework for understanding the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of 43 students in Iguala, Guerrero, on September 26, 2014, and the subsequent demonstrations around the world that demanded justice for the victims and their families.

Jamal Cyrus x Jamire Williams: Boogaloo & The Midnite Hours
February 9 - March 25, 2018
Horton Gallery
"And whatsoever master, owner or overseer shall permit or suffer his or their Negro or other slave or slaves, at any time hereafter, to beat drums, blow horns, or use any other loud instruments [...], shall forfeit ten pounds, current money, for every such offence [...]"
- South Carolina Slave Code Article 36 (1740)
Taking as its starting point the phenomena of percussive "rudiments", and in particular a drum pattern known as the "Boogaloo", in this exhibition Jamire Williams and Jamal Cyrus artistically mine the most generative phases of Black musical evolution. Born out of the convergences between Africa and the Americas, the Boogaloo is diasporic rhythm, speaking to multiple origins and ways of being. Pulling from their respective disciplines of the visual arts and sound, Cyrus and Williams delve into the graphic, sculptural, and sonic possibilities inherent within the tradition of Black music, mixing aspects of the past, present, and future into their recombinant formulas.   
Dani Antelo: Intersections and Interactions on Language
February 9 - March 25, 2018
Project Space

Intersections and Interactions on Language is a performance-based video work documenting separate interactions between the artist and nine strangers. Documented over a five-month period in 2017, the work examines the ways that communication can be forged when there is no common language to rely upon. The exhibition is accompanied by documentation unique to each of the nine interactions.

Using traditional methods such as a hand formed clay coils and carving techniques, ceramic artist Michelle Matthews constructs intuitive forms that balance formal integrity and chance. For this site-specific installation, Matthews will create a large-scale, interactive work comprised of nine clay-based sculptures that will be subject to the natural effects of Houston's environment for the duration of the exhibition.
