apexart: Marfa / Heterotopia

apexart: Marfa / Heterotopoia is a group exhibition exploring the cultural landscape and art of the eastern Trans-Pecos that predates Donald Judd and the contemporary art phenomenon in Marfa, Texas. The exhibition was conceived and curated by crystal am nelson of California, after an extended period as Artist-In-Residence in Marfa. The multi-venue exhibition features a diverse range of works by Texas artists and craftsmen from varying cultural backgrounds, as well as ancient, indigenous Native American rock art of the eastern Trans-Pecos. Heterotopia also features works by guest artists whose works specifically speak to the broader issues of cultural diaspora and hybridity that circulates through and around Marfa.

Prominently featured in the exhibition are large framed panels with photographs of ancient Trans-Pecos  rock art along with interpretive information. The panels were produced by the Cener for Big Bend Studies and the Museum of the Big Bend for the museum exhibit, Removing the Shroud of Mystery: Archeology in the Big Bend. Other participants are Big Bend Saddlery, C3, Allan deSouza, Justin Hoover, Anna Jaquez, Jason Kolker, Enrique Madrid, Mattie Matthaei, C.M. Mayo, Feather Radha, Andrei Renteria, and the Junior Historians (Marfa Public Library).
