Exhibiting the process of art through staging

Annabella Mireles
El Paso artist Christin Apodaca’s exhibit “Proving the Hypothesis of Celestial Flirtation” had her opening reception Aug. 31.

One of the Rubin Center’s new exhibitions is Christin Apodaca’s “Proving the Hypothesis of Celestial Flirtation” which showcases her work including ceramics, sketches, unrealized projects, studio clothing and finished murals. According to the Rubin Center’s website, the exhibition takes its title from the 2023 Wes Anderson film “Asteroid City” due to the parallels of staging and work-in-progress nature.  

Through her work, Apodaca wanted to show the process of artistry, including its ups and downs. One of the pieces shown is her “Rejection Letters” which are pieces that have all been denied funding and sponsorship.  

The gallery takes viewers on a journey of Apodaca’s self-journey as an artist through multiple art forms. The exhibition is supported by the Mellon Foundation grant, making the exhibition a part of the “Genius Loci” series that looks at how the environment can impact artists.  

The gallery will be open until Dec. 15, and is located at the Rubin Center. For more information regarding the exhibition as well as other exhibits brought by the Rubin center, visit its website.
