As part of her ongoing exploration into various notions of value, social status, beauty, worth and degree of femininity as related to the Black Female and how personal memory informs these notions, LOVIE OLIVIA presents “55”, a multimedia installation that employs paintings, sculpture, plaster prints and video to visually express her current inquisitions.

OPEN THE DOOR
In 2013, French and Texan artists together with Houston-based educational and cultural institutions have committed to collaborate in a unique, inclusive and interactive public art project. Starting January 2013, 60 imposing door panels will be created, installed and accessible to everybody in at least thirteen locations around the city of Houston. The locations will be highlighted on a map that will serve as a « Cultural Trail » and guide the public to all the OPEN THE DOOR events pointing to the doors as well as the diverse cultural local neighborhoods around Houston. French and English musicians, dancers, storytellers, etc. will perform at each location. Opening receptions for the installations will feature speakers who will expand upon the ideals and goals of OPEN THE DOOR. OPEN THE DOOR stems from the idea that every new experience we encounter, be it a new phase of life, learning about a new culture, or meet new people, can be represented by the image of a door. We can choose either to leave the door closed or open it and step across the threshold.
