Michael McFadden: aesthetic][equity

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."

Art League Houston

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.
