CYNTHIA ISAKSON ART EXHIBITION
Venue: Institute of Hispanic Culture: Sul Ross St., Houston, TX 77098
Exhibition: January 11th – February 28th

An exhibition by the photographer Cynthia Isakson, consisting of between 20 and 25 portraits and an audio installation.

“When I open my eyes, I photograph them; when I close my eyes, I listen to them.
For 25 years I looked at them, portrayed them, captured them, in order to keep them forever. Emigrating and maintaining close relationships seemed to be two incompatible concepts. But they turned out not to be. 
I see them on my walls and listen to their recorded voices, our conversations. And suddenly the language, what they say, no longer matters. It doesn’t matter if they look at me. It doesn’t matter if they are no longer here.
It’s about that feeling that you get when you close your eyes and you don’t see them anymore, you feel them…”

The exhibition corresponds to the Open Call 2020-2021, a project of Institute of Hispanic Culture of Houston (IHCH).
Invited Juror 2020/2021: Betirri Bengtson

Perishable
Something perishable is likely to die or decay. Since perishing is dying, anything perishable could die or is likely to die. Unfortunately, people are perishable and most things in the world are too. Nothing lasts forever. Whether you’re talking about a perishable or something perishable, this word refers to something that just won’t last.

LATINX SERIES
Online
Premiere: April/May 2021


In this program we would like to highlight the cultural impact of Hispanics in our state, and the contributions of Hispanics to American society in diferente field, such as literature, visual art, music or dance, which have enriched the fabric of American culture. We are choosing Latinx, as more inclusive term, embracing cultural and gender diversity. The goal is to develop a series o 4
programs of high quality that can be integrate as set, and that could be used as educational tools by the institute and other organizations.
