Longilonge by Solange Pessoa, on view at Ballroom Marfa
November 15, 2019 - April 19, 2020
Ballroom Marfa is pleased to announce our fall exhibition Longilonge by Solange Pessoa, on view in Marfa starting November 15th.
The exhibition will include new commissions that respond to the cultural and natural landscape in West Texas, alongside important existing pieces made in Minas Gerais, Brazil, where the artist lives and works.
The title—Longilonge—refers to an invented word, found in the poetry of Carlos Drummond de Andrade. Pessoa repurposes this word to evoke a distant space or time, a longing for the unreachable, a region of temporal textures.
Five distinct bodies of work will converge for the show at Ballroom—displaying touch-points in the arc of the artist’s noted career and creating a connective tissue of imagery, ideas, and relationships between two distant places in North and South America.
The exhibition and all events are free and open to the public.
