Chinati hosts artist Zoe Leonard and poet Tim Johnson in conversation with curator Ingrid Schaffner about Al Rio/To the River. Over 550 photographs by Leonard focus on the Rio Grande/Rio Bravo along the stretch where the river is used to demarcate the boundary between the United States and Mexico. Together with the compendium two-volume publication edited by Johnson, Al Rio/To the River considers deeply and broadly the complexities of border culture.
Texas Talks Art is a multi-institutional initiative intended to both introduce the work of artists across the state of Texas to a wider audience and to foster collaboration between local non-profit arts organizations. Taking the form of virtual 30-minute lunchtime talks, the series features 50 Texas artists and artist collectives in conversation with 50 Texas curators beginning in January 2021 and continuing throughout the year.
