Blaffer Museum Artist Talk – Gabriel Martinez: Everything Turns Away Quite Leisurely

6:30pm – 8:00pm, Blaffer Art Museum

Learn more about the exhibition Everything Turns Away Quite Leisurely by Gabriel Martinez. On Thursday, November 2 from 6:30 – 8:00pm, the Houston-based artist will speak about the ideas behind his work. Everything Turns Away Quite Leisurely is the first museum solo show by Martinez. The exhibition presents a series of ongoing projects as well as new commissioned work specifically produced for the Blaffer galleries. Martinez starts from the defining signifiers of contemporary cities: lots, roads, cars and debris. Scavenging material histories, the artist composes metonyms of a socio-political landscape in a state of entropy. Populated by oil rags, car glass, brick dust, trash, street names, park signs, and interstate shields and adopting geometric patterns and structures, the museum galleries recall a collection of Modern abstraction produced from salvage.

The talk will take place in the museum galleries.  This event is free. For information contact Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts Box Office at 713-743-3388, or by email at kgmcaboxoffice@uh.edu

The National Women’s Conference: Taking 1977 Into The 21st Century

8:30am – 8:00pm, M.D. Anderson Library, Rockwell Pavilion

This year marks the fortieth anniversary of the National Women’s Conference held November 18-21, 1977. At this momentous event, 2,000 elected delegates and around 32,000 observers descended upon Houston, Texas, to participate in the first and only federally funded National Women’s Conference in U.S. history. Hosted in a Sunbelt city on the rise, this conference was the domestic answer to the United Nations’ International Women’s Year official conference and NGO tribune held in Mexico City in 1975. The Houston Conference reflected the tensions of a nation at a crossroad with some seeing it as a promising expression of a more representative, rights-centered democracy and others viewing it as a liberal cooptation of taxpayers’ dollars.

We expect to carry on the conversation in Houston once again this fall, looking forward to the challenges women face in the early twenty-first century as we reflect on past successes and failures. We invite you to return to Houston, Texas and take stock of this historic gathering. In honor of this moment the University of Houston is hosting a two-day conference, November 6-7, bringing together former participants and dynamic scholars.

THIS CONFERENCE IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.  However, spaces are limited so attendees must register in advance here to secure their tickets.
