2018 Past Exhibitions

Main Gallery: January 5 through February 22, 2018


painting, "Vase" by Lauren Moya Ford, loosely rendered, colorful, striped vase with black background


A ship, a vase, a vein- a vessel is something that contains or carries. In videos based on photographs and paintings based on ceramics, Lauren Moya Ford explores media as a vessel for other materials and far away places. This exhibition draws from her experiences living abroad to reflect on the form of memory and the memory of form. The works in Vessel center on botanical life and folkloric pottery as elements that are shaped by human activity, and that change through space and time. In layers of images, told stories, and touched surfaces, the artist’s hand is depicted or suggested as a vessel that contains and carries its own history.

Lauren Moya Ford (Boca Ratón, 1986) is an artist and writer based in Madrid, Spain. She graduated with a BA in Spanish and a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas and completed her MFA in Painting at the University of Houston in 2014. Recent awards include the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center Fellowship for Interdisciplinary Art and the Frank Freed Travel Grant for research in Mexico City. She has participated in performances and exhibitions at The Menil Collection, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston Hirsch Library, and Temple University. Her essays have been published in exhibition catalogs at the Municipal Museum of Lalín, Spain and the University of Coimbra, Portugal, and her artists books have been published by The Center for Imaginative Cartography and Research and Paratext Press.
