PUBLIC RECEPTION: Site-Specific Art Installation “2800 dowling-wasi-sangarara | william cordova”

September 29, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

ON VIEW THRU AUGUST 23, 2024: The site-specific art installation for this year’s “Off the Wall” series is “2800 dowling-wasi-sangarara” by william cordova, which is located on the Rice University campus at at the Raymond and Susan Brochstein Pavilion. The series is a partnership between the Moody Center for the Arts and the Core Residency Program at the MFAH’s Glassell School of Art. Each year, program alumni are selected to create a site-specific installation.

The 2023 featured artist is william cordova, an interdisciplinary cultural practitioner interested in the roots of abstraction, history of textile encoding, and non-linear narratives. He illuminates the synthesis of memory, ritual, and mythology to further disrupt, challenge and reassess definitions of our collective landscape. Intersecting the economy of materials with ephemeral and spatial rhythms, he juxtaposes social-political theories and strategies taken from Third Cinema, a Latin American film movement that used fragmentation, close-up shots, and open-endedness, thus highlighting alternate visual aesthetics.
