The Houston Fine Art Fair’s Artweek kicked off yesterday with a Blaffer Blow Out with Houston Young People for the Arts (HYPA). It’s just the first of a “a non-stop, bodacious, and action-packed week of glamorous events.” Tonight at the new Asia Society Texas Center, international artist Mel Chin talks with local collector Jereann Cheney on the politics of collecting asian art, moderated by Rice Gallery Curator Kim Davenport.
