Mixing art and architecture, come capture the industrial site of the Cistern while simultaneously experiencing an immersive art installation of light and sound.

In May 2016, Buffalo Bayou Partnership (BBP) opened the Cistern, a 1926 underground city reservoir that BBP restored and repurposed. Reminiscent of the ancient Roman cisterns in Istanbul, the Cistern is a cavernous, 87,500-square-foot-space featuring more than 200 slender, 25-foot high concrete columns. Recognizing the historical and architectural significance of the highly unusual space, BBP took a bold step to repurpose the Cistern into a magnificent public space that would house an ambitious program of changing art installations.

Currently on view and in partnership with Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the inaugural installation is Rain: Magdalena Fernández at the Houston Cistern , featuring 2iPM009 from the Venezuelan artist’s video series Mobile Paintings. 2iPM009is an abstract video-projection piece, 1 minute and 56 seconds in length, that evokes a rain-soaked night in which Fernández samples the Slovenian choir Perpetuum Jazzile’s finger snaps, leg slaps, and hand claps to generate a sonic soundtrack.

RSVP by 12:00pm Friday, April 28th.
