EXHIBIT: Urban Sprawl at TBH

Talento Bilingüe de Houston will host the exhibition, “Urban Sprawl," Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., beginning March 22 and through April 29. Curator for the show is Angel Quesada.

The exhibit, part of FotoFest 2012, displays photographic reflections, meditations and comments regarding the Urban Environment. The invited artists address the common thread found in every metropolitan setting and source their images from their own surroundings — Austin, Houston, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City.
  
The installation of the exhibit echoes the emergence of urban development. Some of pieces hang from walls, while others are mounted on windows and incorporated into a miniature cityscape constructed as a central part of the exhibition. The installation will incorporate graffiti writing and  soundscapes by the artists. The ever-present theme of decay and construction resonates in the works of the seven artists.

Houston's FotoFest is the United States’ oldest and largest citywide, international, photographic art biennial. Founded in 1983 by Fred Baldwin and Wendy Watriss, FotoFest is recognized as one of the most important photography events in the world and a leader in its field. FotoFest is known for its discovery of important but little-known artists, its ability to use art as a platform for important social ideas and its ground-breaking exhibition and portfolio review programs.
