ARTIST TALK “Cian Dayrit with Kristi Rangel” at POST Houston X-Atrium

March 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2024 at 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM: The Houston Climate Justice Museum presents Mitchell Center Visiting Artist Cian Dayrit in conversation with Kristi Rangel at POST Houston X-Atrium.

Cian Dayrit is a Manila-based multidisciplinary artist working in painting, sculpture, and installation. The phrase “counter-cartography” is used by Dayrit to describe many well-known works of hand-embroidered textiles that transform historic maps into portraits of contemporary social conditions. Counter-cartography is used by the artist as a pedagogical practice to chart histories of imperialism, industrialization, and systems of subjugation that shape geographical boundaries and cultural narratives globally. Working together with artists and activists in Houston, the Blaffer will present Dayrit’s artworks and Countermapping Workshops to excavate histories of imperialism, extraction, and displacement among historically marginalized people, while summoning new imaginaries that recognize the overlapping global struggles and resistance.

Cian Dayrit’s solo exhibition Liberties Were Taken will open at the Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houston on May 31, 2024. The exhibition focuses on works throughout the artist’s career in the Philippines, as well as works created through a series of counter-mapping workshops in Houston and around the world.
