Somewhere Else explores a yearning for a home or a sense of place that one cannot return to, no longer exists, or maybe never was. In this new series from Jane Szabo, hand-constructed homes are covered in a wide array of maps and photographed in natural settings and within architectural interiors. The maps that surface these homes do not reflect the location of the image, but are instead evocative of locations once explored or longed for, as well as the literal and spiritual journey of life itself. Both dream state and inner search, the series takes the artist and the viewer on a provocative path of escape and wonder.

Foto Relevance is excited to announce Letitia Huckaby for Beautiful Blackness, a solo exhibition opening in conjunction with the Houston-wide FotoFest 2020 Biennial: AFRICAN COSMOLOGIES—Photography, Time, and the Other. In keeping with the Biennial’s theme, Huckaby’s Beautiful Blackness taps deep into the historical entanglements surrounding African American life in the rural American south. Photographs framed in embroidery hoops, reproduced on patterned flour sacks, and sewn into patchwork quilts serve as an elegy for a lost promised land. Landscapes and figurative works combine to depict a people and an unfulfilled legacy.
