Perspectives 172: Kirsten Pieroth
October 1 - January 2, 2011
5216 Montrose Boulevard, Houston, TX 77006
Berlin-based artist Kirsten Pieroth‘s project at the Contemporary Arts Museum investigates radio and telephone technology and the work of pioneering radio scientist Guglielmo Marconi (1874-1937). In Perspectives 172, Pieroth exhibits conceptual sculptures and installation that incorporate materials and histories of everyday objects. Filled with low-key humor, the exhibition restages the world as a mutable funhouse. Perspectives 172 is curated by Toby Kamps and is the artist’s first solo museum exhibition.
