Gavin Morrison

Gavin Morrison is curator of Fort Worth Contemporary Arts at Texas Christian University and a director of the curatorial initiative, Atopia Projects. For this Tuesday Evenings presentation, Cowboys on the Lido, Morrison considers a hypothetical Texas pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennial in 2011 (also the 175th anniversary of the founding of the Republic of Texas), asking, “What would it mean for Texas to be presented in this context and at a time where nation-states and cultural identity are often subject to continual negotiation?”
