Perspectives 170: Cruz Ortiz
May 7 - July 11, 2010
5216 Montrose Boulevard, Houston, TX 77006
San Antonio artist Cruz Ortiz takes over the CAMH for his first museum exhibition with his alien alter ego- the Spaztek, a post-Chicano, post-punk antihero that is part Aztek, part spazz, and part spaceman. With prints, paintings, sculptures, video, installation, and performance, Ortiz’s work is speaks about life, love, and the struggle for equality. A colorful two-story siege tower constructed from salvaged bike parts will be installed out on the front lawn of the CAMH too! Perspectives 170: Cruz Ortiz is organized by Toby Kamps, senior curator and will be accompanied by an exhibition catalogue.
