This week, the Green Party of the United States is holding its national convention in Houston, from August 4-7 on the U of H campus. In conjunction, the grassroots activist group Move to Amend, the Station Museum in Houston, and FIXCapitalism.com are holding a pop-up art “revolution” at the M.D. Anderson Library on campus on Thursday and Friday.
Global Corpocracy is the title of the group show, and it features both international and regional artists who “present their views on corpocracy or ‘corporate rule.'” (This is the second Corpocracy show in Houston; the first was at the Station Museum, held from last October through March.)
The list of international artists in this show includes Clark V. Fox, Ron English, Eugenio Merino, Stephanie Syjuco, and Sajjad Musa, and local artists include Daniel Anguilu, Wayne Gilbert, Alicia Duplan, Lester Marks, Jajah Gray, Vincent Negron, Marco Villegas, Felipe Lopez, John Runnels, Louise Schlachter, David Krase, Solomon Kane, Randall Kallinen, Trish Cramblet, John Mitchell Linden II, and Christian Sarkar.
Also: “David Cobb, co-founder of Move to Amend, an activist group working with both Republicans and Democrats to repeal Citizen’s United, will speak at the pop-up show on Thursday, August 4.”
