2 December 2020
Carmen Herrera’s two current exhibitions at the Museum of Fine Arts and Buffalo Bayou Park in Houston will be the focus of a virtual panel discussion tomorrow, 3 December, at 1:30pm CST. Organised by Buffalo Bayou Partnership, on the occasion of the major public exhibition ‘Estructuras Monumentales’, BBP Board Member and Co-Chair of the organization’s Public Art Committee Judy Nyquist will be joined by curators from the MFA Houston and the Public Art Fund to discuss the four newly-created large scale sculptures on show. Panelists include: Rachel Mohl, Assistant Curator, Latin American and Latino Art at MFA, Houston; Daniel S. Palmer, Curator at Public Art Fund; Dena M. Woodall, Ph.D., Curator, Prints and Drawings at MFA, Houston.
Presented globally for the second time following Public Art Fund's debut show of Herrera's sculptures in New York last year, 'Estructuras Monumentales' runs in tandem with 'Carmen Herrera: Structuring Surfaces' at MFAH, which showcases more than 30 works from the 1960s to the present.
