LINES DRAWN, the exhibition, closed on Saturday Nov. 18th. I want to thank curator, Xandra Eden for inviting me to be part of this great show and providing me a platform to introduce new ideas about citizenship and extraterritorial art spaces.
Thank you to everyone who came to visit me and to all the artists in the show. It was great having conversations throughout the show having learned more from the exchange and about the people who I engaged with.
The show had to close early at 5pm because it became a venue for a wedding of Sixto Wagan, University of Houston Director of the Center for Art and Social Engagement. We met through various meeting of Arts Takes Action Houston. He was very sorry because never come by for a conversation. Still, I decided to make a sign in honor of his marriage. It said “Asunto de Amore por la Justicia”, “Love matters for Justice”. Which of course is the subtitle of Nussbaum’s book, Political Emotions. It made him tear up.
