Right Here, Right Now: Houston

Contemporary Arts Museum Houston - CAMH

August 23 - November 30, 2014

The first of "an occasional and ongoing series through which the museum will investigate localized artistic practices." (Read: we'll do shows of local artists from time to time, but don't hold us to any kind of schedule!) The CAMH's Bill Arning, Valerie Cassell Oliver and Dean Daderko each chose a Houston artist to feature: Debra Barrera, Nathaniel Donnett, and Carrie Marie Schneider, respectively.

Christopher Blay: Satellites

CentralTrak

August 23 - September 20, 2014

Blay's work typically demonstrates a smart, funny sensibility. For this show he'll be constructing fake communication satellite equipment using cheap umbrellas and windshield sunscreens. Should be fun.

MANN ON THE STREET: Videos by Andy Mann

grayduck gallery

September 6, 2014 | 8–10 pm

Andy Mann (1947-2001) was a seminal video artist in the 1970s and 80s, known in particular for his wonderful street tapes shot in the then-rough streets of SoHo and on the New York subway. He was associated with several historic video collectives such as Global Village, Raindance, Perception, Videofreex, and TVTV (Top Value Television), as well as a contributor to the video art magazine Radical Software, founded in 1970. He lived in Houston from the 1980s until his death in 2001. We are big fans of his work and are thrilled to see this show, curated by Jarrett Hayman, being presented in Austin. DON'T MISS THIS.

San Antonio

Flatland

Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center

July 11 - October 11, 2014

We like flat screen TVs too.)
