Democracy

July 28 through September 15, 2018
From the museum: "Democracyunderscores the fact that in America our primary remedy for the kinds of societal inequities that in·dif·fer·ence highlights is through the democratic process of voting.  Using a re-creation of the state office of former state representative and now Mayor Sylvester Turner, we ask our audience to imagine what they would say to the individual sitting behind that desk and /or what they would do if they sat in that chair. Through video of local leaders using their voices to challenge inequities, Democracy hopes to inspire a generation to see the democratic process as a useful tool in combatting indifference, inequity and inequality."

July 21 through September 22, 2018
"Falling to Find: A Journey to Love Attained tells the story of a time where artist LaTonia Allen found herself being overwhelmed with emotions of depression, isolation and insecurity. Each piece is paired with a song to directly convey the different emotions felt in these moments of vulnerability. Through these works, she credits these songs to not only allowing her to accept being in these spaces but more importantly, aid her in navigating through them. Follow along in this symphonic journey as she tells of how she found a new disposition of self-fulfillment and confidence through art and music."

in·dif·fer·ence

July 28 through September 22, 2018
From the museum: "in·dif·fer·ence underscores the notion that the indifference of good men and women is inaction, and that inaction in the face of injustice breeds further injustice. The installation examines the extent to which statements by Donald Trump have exacerbated racial tensions and animosities in America, the extent to which many police interactions with people of color are defined by a narrative of abuse and injustice, and the current indifference and inaction of conservatives and liberals alike that appears to be resulting in a quickening reversal of racial equality."

Raheleh Filsoofi: On Transcending the Inhibited Space

August 16 through September 25, 2018

She is fascinated by the sense that place has in one’s identity and how visual and aural stimulae serve to define it."

B. Anele: I Don’t Play That Game

July 27 through October 7, 2018
B. Anele: I Don’t Play That Game is "a solo exhibition of the Houston-based transdisciplinary artist’s most recent work, ranging from raw-canvas sculptural garments and portraiture to soft sculpture. Anele’s garments are sculptural, transcending into almost infrastructural and architectural forms. From conjoined jackets with arms that extend into a monumental, unifying chain to a jumpsuit with tar-colored, ten-foot-long pant legs intersected by broken, white road lines, their works commune with space, act as elements of support/restriction, and prescribe the reciprocal relationships between the wearers and their surroundings."

A new installation in Houston's Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern by artist Carlos Cruz-Diez. "Cruz-Diez’s Spatial Chromointerference (1974/2018) creates a situation in space involving the dematerialization, transfiguration, and ambiguity of color through movement. By projecting moving chromatic interference modules on objects and people, these become transparent and virtually change condition and form. The spectator becomes both actor and author of a complete chromatic event, which evolves through space."
