DALLAS – CYDONIA is pleased to announce Survival Politics, a solo exhibition by Giovanni Valderas. The Oak Cliff native provides a 'close to home' perspective for the gallery's activist-themed programming for the 2018-2019 year. The reception will take place from 6PM to 8PM on Saturday, March 23. The exhibition runs from March 23 to May 18, 2019. Survival Politics serves as a celebration and a reflection of Giovanni Valderas's Casitas Triste project that began on Christmas Eve of 2017. Various mediums including photo documentation, sculpture, 'social constructs', and archived remnants of the guerrilla-style project will be presented to elucidate the geographical and emotional dimensions of Casitas Triste. Located in the heart of Oak Cliff, the gallery seeks to transform into a gathering place for the community that the project empathizes towards.
