Cydonia presents "Survival Politics," a solo exhibition by Giovanni Valderas. The Oak Cliff native provides a "close to home" perspective for the gallery’s activist-themed programming for the 2018-2019 year.

"Survival Politics" serves as a celebration and a reflection of Valderas’ Casitas Triste project that began on Christmas Eve of 2017. Various mediums including photo documentation, sculpture, "cultural constructs," text paintings, and archived remnants of the guerrilla-style project will be presented to elucidate the geographical and emotional dimensions of Casitas Triste. Located in the heart of Oak Cliff, the gallery seeks to transform into a gathering place for the community that the project empathizes towards.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through May 18.
