Enrique Madrid and the Reanimation of Rio Bravo

11 Apr 2013

From our friends at the Marfa Book Company:

“Thursday, April 11th 6 pm
RIO BRAVO: Danish artist Joachim Hamou and MBCo are teaming up to reanimate , Hamou’s former gallery and performance space, for a series of three talks pertaining to Border Issues. Join us this Thursday, April 11th, to hear Redford, TX based Historian Enrique Madrid talk about the history and culture of the Greater Big Bend.”

Enrique and his wife Ruby were part of Ballroom and Alyce Santoro‘s Texas Biennial weekend in 2011. Santoro’s short film about Madrid’s radical tortilla cosmology will give you some idea of how deep Enrique can go.
