Artist Talk: Reynier Leyva Novo

Thursday, February 8, 2024

6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Remnants of ideology, markers of absence, and the ephemerality of revolution are embedded in recognizable sites of memory, power, and public space around us. Locating these layered and often obscured traces of political presence, multidisciplinary artist Reynier Leyva Novo excavates – and elevates – historical archives and imagery into today. In so doing, he deepens conversations surrounding the space, memory, and narratives of the past made manifest in the present and future. Former Present Today is the first solo museum exhibition in Texas for the Cuban conceptual artist and reflects upon re-imagined space, public monuments, and collective memory in nationalist ideology and the failed journey to social utopia.
