Description

In partnership with the Southwest School of Art, join us for a Welcome Reception to celebrate the 18th anniversary of the program and meet 29 Fellows from across the country. View the exhibition What Remains by Mari Hernandez, enjoy music by DJ Despeinada, appetizers and wine.


MUSIC: DJ Despeinada

EATS: Appetizers by Tim the Girl

EXHIBITION: What Remains by Mari Hernandez

Acting as photographer, subject, make-up artist, and designer, Mari Hernandez alters her identity and physical appearance through the use of make-up, prosthetics, wigs, costumes, and props. Through narrative, she reinterprets histories and proposes new ones. Elements of performance distinguish her work from other modes of photography and highlight the staging of identity, gender, and action. Hernandez’s work is made possible through an intentional exploration of the creative process and the complex negotiation of a reliance on memory, history and unlearning.


SUPPORTERS

This Reception is made possible thanks to generous support from the Southwest School of Art. The NALAC Leadership Institute has been supported by Southwest Airlines, National Endowment for the Arts, Surdna Foundation, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, The Nathan Cummings Foundation, Texas Commission on the Arts, SAY Sí, individual donors, NALAC members and volunteers.
