Perspectives 157: Xaviera Simmons @ Nina and Michael Zilkha Gallery

Perspectives 157: Xaviera Simmons marks the first Texas exhibition for Simmons and the debut of Simmons’s installation, Electric Relaxation: Digital Good Time (How to Break Your Own Heart), which also doubles as a performance space.  The installation is comprised of hundreds of vintage record album sleeves covering the walls of the Zilkha Gallery.  The evolving aspect of the installation is music, supplied throughout the run of the exhibition by archival footage of jazz, rhythm and blues, and hip hop concerts, as well as soundscapes created by the artist.  The catalogue includes an interview with the artist by Valerie Cassel Oliver and documentation of the artist’s career.
