Christopher Knowles: In a Word

Contemporary Arts Museum Houston - CAMH

December 15 - March 25, 2018

An exhibition of works by Brooklyn-based artist Christopher Knowles. The artist's work "records and reorders the everyday materials around us using incantatory rhythms and repetition. Typings of language permutations, reimagined song lyrics, interlocking blocks of raw color commonly depict family and close friends. Sculptures are precise and direct in construction: polka-dotted cones, brilliantly hued paper cutouts, Lego structures, and accumulations of wind-up alarm clocks."
