Liliana Porter Exhibition

December 10 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Blanton Museum of Art, 200 E. Martin Muther King Jr. Blvd.
Austin, 78712
+ Google Map
Included with museum admission; Free for members and UT students, faculty, and staff.

In the video Drum Solo  (2000; 19 min) 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  (2005) will also be on view, featuring a tiny worker shoveling an impossibly large pile of mulch, a light-hearted but incisive comment about labor and social injustice.
