5216 Montrose Boulevard, Houston, TX 77006
Born in the State of FLUX/us is a retrospective of Benjamin Patterson‘s career, spanning nearly fifty years. Emerging in the early 1960s, Patterson helped usher in an era of new and experimental music and his work fell under the rubric of Fluxus or Neo-Dadaco. Organized by CAMH Curator Valerie Cassel Oliver, this show marks his first major exhibition, bringing together Patterson’s annotated scores and instructions for performances along with audio and video documentation of the artist’s performances over the last five decades.
