Other Criteria at Texas Contemporary, Booth 405

September 16, 2015 by Mary

Texas Contemporary returns to Houston's historic downtown district October 1–4, 2015. Other Criteria is pleased to present works by Damien Hirst Harland Miller and  Eduardo Sarabia in Booth 405.

The fifth edition marks the launch of the fair's dynamic partnership with The Mexican Consulate in Houston's Department of Cultural Affairs to present The Other Mexico, soon to be a conduit for contemporary art between Houston and Mexico.

To celebrate this partnership, Other Criteria has chosen to highlight Mexican American artist, Eduardo Sarabia’s newest series. This series of mixed media collages find their roots in traditional Talavera ceramic making and the Mexican folk art of ‘papel picad’, a craft form of cutting and elaborately designing paper with small chisels.

Extending Sarabia’s exploration of the intersection between traditional Mexican art-making and modern contraband culture, a feature of the Sarabia exhibition in Other Criteria’s booth will include a handmade tapestry inspired by the ‘narcomantas’ of Mexico. These crudely made coded messages are traditionally hung in Mexico’s public spaces by gangs and drug cartels. Our narcomanta has been reinterpreted by the artist as a message of love, reading, ‘Amor, Amor, Amor.’
