A Celebration of Texas-Based Bisexual Artists

Playing off the Texas Biennial, Curation Myth Ministries, Box 13 ArtSpace is hosting BI 2011: A Celebration of Texas-based Bisexual Artists and yes, according to Emily Sloan the curator, all the artists involved have declared themselves bisexual.

The work on display will include performance, photography, video and zine from Daniel Adame, Ben Tecumseh DeSoto, Ryan Hawk, Koomah, Traci Matlock, Y.E. Torres, Addie Tsai and Julia Wallace.

Sloan told Art Attack the artists wanted their work presented in this kind of collection, saying that "a lot of shows have addressed sexuality but not their voice."

"This show is very exciting as it offers a setting for a micro-dialog of bisexuals operating outside of both homosexual and heterosexual communities," said Sloan.

Opening night for BI 2011:A Celebration of Texas-based Bisexual Artists is Saturday April 30 from 7-9:30 p.m. at Box 13 ArtSpace, 6700 Harrisburg Blvd. The exhibition will be open on the following Saturdays from 1-5 p.m. May 7, 14 and 21. For more information call 713-582-1198.
