“HOME: So Different, So Appealing” is the newest exhibit at the MFAH and we have collaborated with them to provide TWO literary events.

1) Casa Mía: A Writing Workshop on “HOME” – Join Tintero Projects for a one-of-a-kind literary experience.  Participants will be able to create writings based on themes in the exhibition HOME—So Different, So Appealing as well develop writing based on their own concepts and memories of what “home” means.

Workshop leads will work with the public to create their own writings in poetry, prose and fiction. This is not a sit down workshop, but rather, an special opportunity to engage with the exhibit and then engage with workshop leads as participants create their own creative writings

This workshop is adaptable for all ages, and is presented in both English and Spanish. Bring a friend, and get ready to write about home.

2) Around the Block: A Night of Literary Voices – Join the Museum and Tintero Projects for a unique night of literary art!

Five Houston writers present work inspired by the exhibition HOME—So Different, So Appealing. You’ll join the writers on a walk around the “neighborhoods” and “hogares” (homes) presented in the exhibition. Each of the writers have a created a literary work in prose, poetry, fiction and theatre all the public. Museum patrons are invited to take an interactive visit through the exhibit, engage with the artwork and then in certain moments, engage with a “literary moment” as a writer presents their work, throughout the evening.

ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:

HOME—So Different, So Appealing features U.S. Latino and Latin American artists from the late 1950s to the present who use the universal concept of “home” as a lens through which to view socioeconomic and political changes in the Americas over the past seven decades. More than 100 works by 39 artists explore the differences and similarities within art related to immigration and political repression; dislocation and diaspora; and personal memory and utopian ideals.

The exhibition brings together U.S. artists of Cuban, Mexican, and Puerto Rican origin in a dialogue with artists from Argentina, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, Uruguay, and Venezuela, among other countries. Despite the political, cultural, and religious affinities they share, these two broad and highly diverse groups have been, until now, treated separately from one another.

Across a variety of media—including painting, sculpture, installation, performance, photography, film, and video—these artists examine and interpret one of the most basic social concepts by which individuals, families, nations, and regions understand themselves in relation to others. In the process, these works of art also offer an alternative narrative of postwar and contemporary art.
