Cleaver: Cassandra Emswiler Burd & Lucia Simek

Art Beef is pleased to announce the opening of Cleaver, an exhibition of new work by Dallas-based artists Cassandra Emswiler Burd and Lucia Simek, curated by Alison Starr, on view at BEEFHAUS, Sept 2 – 30.


In the fall of 2014, Cassandra Emswiler Burd and Lucia Simek found themselves sitting next to one another in a cubicle, two artists tasked with wordsmithing. Through this unexpected proximity, each has witnessed a good bit of the other. Many exchanges about family, art, and identity have taken place over the past few years during some of the most tumultuous moments in American history—as well as their own lives. It follows that work by each artist should be brought together in the same space.

Cassandra is expecting a child in early November and will be leaving her post next to Lucia shortly after this exhibition closes.

Exhibition: September 2 – 30, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 9, 7 – 9 pm
