Solar Studios at Rice University is a hub for creative thinking about living systems, addressing art, energy and the environment. Join us for performance, sculpture and installation with artists Daniela Antelo, Bradly Brown, Brenda Cruz-Wolf, Tony Day, Lina Dib, Trey Duvall and Erik Hagen. Opening reception Friday March 23rd 6pm-10pm, featuring a performance by Daniela Antelo at 7pm.
We are contained in what appears to be something disastrous. We’ve tried to come up with a cure or a means of escape. We are mesmerized. We can’t stop looking and pointing. This feels epic and somehow grandiose. Like the view from a mountaintop. But we aren’t on top of any mountain. We are in the gutters, looking at the stars as they say. Join us as we bemoan our pointing and celebrate the sublime natures of which we are part. March 23 to April 23, seven days a week. Sponsored by Rice University’s Strategic Initiatives and the Center for Energy and Environmental Research in the Human Sciences, and in part by a grant from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance. Special thanks to Colin Hendee, Taylor Knapps, Rob Purvis, Tish Stringer and METALabs. The Solar Studios are located at Rice University on College Way Loop and Allumni Dr. between Herring Hall and Hanzen College. [Organizer's description]
