Blanton Museum of Art presents "Liliana Porter" opening day
In the video Drum Solo, Liliana Porter brings to life a cast of recurrent toy-like characters that have appeared in her artworks over the years. Through straight-forward animation and accompanied by a music score by Sylvia Meyer, vintage figurines perform in humorous, absurd, and sometimes moving vignettes. Porter’s installation "Labor forzada [Forced Labor] (2005)" will also be on view, featuring a tiny worker shoveling an impossibly large pile of dirt, a light-hearted but incisive comment about labor and social injustice.
Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display through March 3, 2019.
