About the Exhibitions

This Land  is an exhibition reflecting on landscape. Bringing together five multidisciplinary artists from regions across the Americas—Vivian Caccuri, Raven Chacon, Minerva Cuevas, Danielle Dean, and Jamilah Sabur—the show explores the concept of land as a container for subjects including the histories and mythologies of place, migration and displacement, and the exploitation of human labor and natural resources. In doing so, the exhibition seeks to address the complex and historically fraught concept of “land,” or “landscape,” as a system, centering the artists’ inquiries into political, economic, and social conditions shaping our world in this era of global capitalism.

Working across sculpture, video, sound, and performance, HOST: Aryel René Jackson explores landscape as a site of personal representation. In this newly commissioned work, Jackson presents a sculptural installation that recalls the landscapes of Texas and Louisiana, two places that hold profound meaning for the artist. Jackson was raised in New Orleans and is now based in Austin.
