Inspired by La Fuente Del Deseo, a solo exhibition by Georgina Treviño that transports viewers to the vibrant norteño culture of the Mexico-U.S. border, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft is pleased to present a special one-night concert with Las Fenix. Las Fenix is an all-female norteño band featuring five sisters from Houston, Texas. The group has made their mark on a traditionally male-dominated genre with high-energy live performances and a singular sound that brings a contemporary pop valence to traditional Mexican cumbia and norteño sounds. The band has toured extensively in Mexico and the U.S., performing at venues including Los Angeles Dodgers Stadium and acting as musical representatives of the “Don’t Mess With Texas” campaign.

Experience this exhibition through the lens of music in this special program, which is generously supported by Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts and Advocates of a Latino Museum of Cultural and Visual Arts & Archive Complex in Houston, Harris County (ALMAAHH).

From creating custom jewelry for celebrities like Rosalía, Karol G, and Lady Gaga to nameplate necklace-inspired swings emblazoned with norteño song lyrics, Georgina Treviño makes music an integral part of her artistic practice. In fact, her custom wearables made for Beyoncé and Bad Bunny are on view in the exhibition for the first time. Before the performance, visitors will also have the opportunity to meet the artist in person and buy customized exhibition merchandise.

TICKETS: $15 per person
