2018/2019 Artist Studio Program Exhibition
June 21 – August 18
citysinging presents a body of new work by Julia Barbosa Landois, Robert Hodge, and John Pluecker, made during their 2018-2019 Artist Studio Program residencies at Lawndale. Barbosa Landois looks to the ouroboros as it spirals into itself, to consider the sensation of fleeing climate disaster, especially in light of the recent Deer Park petrochemical fire and other (un)natural events. Hodge’s documentary and installation work describes the Blues scene of 1990s-era Houston, as its practitioners remain too-often unremembered or unrecorded. Pluecker’s poem-objects pay homage to ongoing conversations with their father about the affective geographies and lived violences buried across Houston and in family remembering. Together, their work pushes at the untold and its impossibilities and memories, the entanglement of absence with its description, and the ways this particular place holds its own songs of the unspeakable, the lost, the soon-to-be-gone. The exhibition is curated by Laura August, PhD.
