Join Suplex for the final iteration of Suplex Presents: Three Exhibitions at 1517 Alabama St., featuring installations, video, prints, and sculptural work by Texas-based artist Lauren Moya Ford.

Lauren Moya Ford is an artist and writer. Her work has been featured at the Blaffer Art Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Joanna, the Brandon, and the Wendy. She was the 2013-2014 recipient of the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center Fellowship for Interdisciplinary in the Arts and was awarded a Freed Travel Grant for study in Mexico City. Lauren's Suplex project explores borders in their literal and figurative manifestations, and uses both language and images to investigate the linguistic, cultural, and biological diversity found in border spaces.

About the exhibition

Suplex Presents: Three Exhibitions is 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.

"Suplex Presents" is made possible through the support of the Idea Fund, Common Ground, and in-kind donations from The Brackman Family. Documentation and promotional video produced by Brenda Cruz-Wolf.
