The Moody will host a day of free family fun on Saturday, June 3, 12:00-6:00 pm, to inaugurate the site-specific sculpture by Brooklyn-based artist David Scanavino. This day, called Summer Jam, includes a set by DJ Flash Gordon Parks (12-2:30PM), food trucks, and a presentation by David Scanavino (2:30-3PM). Additionally, WITS Houston’s own Outspoken Bean will hold a spoken word performance from 3-4:30PM that includes poets from Meta-Four Houston and Houston V.I.P. Poetry Slam. Aurora Picture Show will host a film screening in the Lois Chiles Studio Theater from 4:30-6PM.
Repeater is an immersive, site-specific sculpture created by David Scanavio. Installed in the Moody’s Central Gallery, the design of the work playfully skews the shape of the floor and sends it up the walls to a height of 24 feet. The colorful sculpture is made of commonly available industrial tiles that create pathways that invite people to move in and around the artwork. Repeater is both a geometric painting and an architectural space that becomes an irresistible site for engagement. Workshops and performances will take place in dialogue with Repeater throughout the summer.
