TX BI 2011: A Celebration of Texas-based Bisexual Artists

For Immediate Release—HOUSTON, TEXAS (April 15, 2011)— TX BI 2011: A Celebration of Texas-based Bisexual Artists: a group exhibition curated by Emily Sloan, on view at Curation Myth Ministries, Box 13 Artspace, April 30 through May 21.

Daniel Adame, Sasha Dela, Ben Tecumseh DeSoto, Ryan Hawk, Koomah, Traci Matlock, Y.E. Torres, Addie Tsai and Julia Wallace are the selected artists for the exhibition. Work presented includes performance, photography, video, and zine. The exhibition is curated by Emily Sloan and on view in her studio/exhibition/meeting space Curation Myth Ministries within Box 13 ArtSpace. The exhibition coincides with the Texas Biennial also on view within Box 13 ArtSpace and has a reception on Saturday, April 30 from 7-9:30pm.

“This show is very exciting as it offers a setting for a micro-dialogue of bisexuals operating outside of both homosexual and heterosexual communities” said Emily Sloan, curator of the exhibition and studio resident of Curation Myth Ministries. “I wanted to open my studio to other artists to give them a chance to share their unique vision. The show being in the same building during the same time as the Texas Biennial just adds yet another layer of excitement!”

In addition to the opening night of Saturday, April 30, the exhibition will be open to the public on the following Saturdays from 1pm to 5pm: May 7, May 14 and May 21. Saturday, May 21 at 2pm there will be a closing artists' and curator's talk.
