Mark Flood: Gratest Hits

Contemporary Arts Museum Houston - CAMH

April 30 - August 7, 2016

"Never has an exhibition enjoyed so many moments of extreme visual beauty, cheek by jowl with crude humor and aggressive, roughly rendered texts to create a visual roller coaster ride. Gratest Hits presents the deep wisdom and humor of three decades of work while ultimately revealing the true achievement of an artist who has produced many highly praised works and had an active career despite remaining barely visible at the museum level."
