The Eleventh Hour
September 6 - October 12, 2013
4102 Fannin St., Houston, TX 77004
The issues of the eighties and nineties, the period in which DiverseWorks was most socially and politically vocal, are still being discussed on the local and national stage. The Eleventh Hour shares its title with a now-destroyed 1992 painting by Rachel Hecker that was created in response to a series of censorship and abortion issues unfolding at the time. DiverseWorks has been an instigator of dialogue and action for many years and this exhibition celebrates that history.
Artists featured include Elia Arce, Eric Avery, Johannes Birringer, Mel Chin, Ben DeSoto, Karen Finley, Michael Galbreth, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, the Gorilla Girls/Houston, Deborah Hay, Sharon Hayes, Rachel Hecker, Zhang Huan, Infernal Bridegroom Productions, Rhodessa Jones, William Pope.L, Annie Sprinkle, Mary Ellen Strom, and many others.
