Suplex Presents: Justin Boyd

  • Axlerad Building 1517 Alabama St Houston, TX, 77004 United States (map)

Join us on Friday, October 24 from 5:30-8PM for the opening reception of "Suplex Presents: Justin Boyd." Admission is free and open to the public.

Suplex is pleased to announce "Suplex Presents: Three Exhibitions", a series of three solo exhibitions featuring Texas-based artists Justin Boyd, Jamal Cyrus, and Lauren Moya Ford. Transforming a previously abandoned location in Houston, each artist will activate the space through site-specific installations, performances, and artworks. "Three Exhibitions" is inspired by socially engaging participatory performance in contemporary art and an impulse to respond to those histories within the context of Houston. Each artist will determine the nature of audience engagement in each exhibition. By presenting artwork outside of typical institutions or white wall galleries, Suplex hopes to structure a new dynamic experience for local audiences. 

About the artist:
Justin Boyd is an artist living in San Antonio. He received his BFA from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and earned his MFA from the California Institute of Arts. He is currently the Chair of the Sculpture and Integrated Media Department at the Southwest School of Art. Justin has been the recipient of an Artist Foundation Grant, Artpace Travel Grant, and was a finalist for the Arthouse Texas Prize, while having had the privilege of participating in numerous solo and group exhibitions including The Contemporary in Austin, Artpace in San Antonio and the Contemporary Art Museum, Houston.
