Georgina Treviño: La Fuente del Deseo
On view through August 24, 2024
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
Houston, Texas

“La Fuente del Deseo (The Fountain of Desire)” is the first, institutional solo exhibition of work by Georgina Treviño, an interdisciplinary artist and metalsmith from Tijuana, Mexico, based in San Diego, California. Treviño’s expansive approach to adornment combines art jewelry and sculptural traditions with the vernacular material culture, architecture, and norteño music of the Mexico-United States border. The artist occupies a radical peripheral space, both in regional perspective and artistic discipline, which allows her to deftly traverse various realms of creative production, ranging from cast-silver jewelry and tableware to custom wearables for celebrities and industrially scaled sculpture.
