Art League Houston
August 5 - September 17, 2016
An exhibition using Art League Houston's hallway gallery "as a site of reflection, focusing on the turbulent history of socio-economic inequity found within the Houston arts community. Through a presentation that is part visual record and part call-to-action, the exhibition lays the groundwork for artistic intervention and theoretical efforts to level an unjust art-world hierarchy."
August 5 - September 17, 2016
An exhibition featuring a chapbook of poetry and sculptures based on the children’s fiction series The Babysitters Club by Ann M. Martin. The poems lift lines from Martin's text, and the sculptures respond and attempt to translate the poems into material objects.
August 5 - September 17, 2016
Organized by Zachary Gresham, this show "aims to challenge the dichotomy of physical and conceptual space while exploring socially-engaged work centered on pedagogy to incite individual/communal action, response, contemplation, resistance." Included in the show are artists who create works that are influenced by art education and educational initiatives.
