ART EVENT “The Houston Brick Archive: Artist Walkthrough” with Alexander Squier at Julia Ideson Building

May 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Free

SATURDAY, MAY 18, 2024 at 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM: Join artist Alexander Squier on a guided walkthrough of his project, The Houston Brick Archive, on view at the Julia Ideson Building thru June 1, 2024.

The core of the exhibition is a mobile collection of over 400 bricks and blocks salvaged from various sites around Houston over the last several years. They are treated as archaeological artifacts, processed in a way that is scientific but also impulsive. Part theater, part research project, the Archive combines sculpture, photography, sound, and other documents focusing on the bricks’ physical qualities and histories; an investigative video reverts the bricks back into terrain, and visitors may make their own rubbings of select bricks.
