MARFA

EVENTS

For a full schedule of events and tickets, visit marfamyths.com.

EXHIBITIONS

Ballroom Marfa, 108 E. San Antonio St., Marfa, has scheduled “Candelilla, Coatlicue and the Breathing Machine,” an exhibition with newly commissioned and existing works by Beatriz Cortez, Candice Lin and Fernando Palma Rodríguez, through the end of September.

The exhibition includes contributions that range from wax pours to robotic storytellers to provisional shelters and beyond. The disparate installations and objects from these three artists weave together a multivalent conversation about the animate qualities of land; the coexistent simultaneities of past, present and future; as well as human and non-human migrations, cross-contaminations and porousness – all while forwarding their own individual investigations.

An opening reception with a live performance by Rob Mazurek has been scheduled from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. today.

Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

Admission is free.

Call 432-729-3600, email info@ballroommarfa.org or visit www.ballroommarfa.org.
