Contemporary Arts Museum Houston - CAMH
September 15 - January 7, 2018
A show featuring a new video and two sculptures by Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz. The video, Telepathic Improvisation, "uses humans and non-humans, movement, speech, gesture, music, light, and smoke to interpret composer Pauline Oliveros’s 1974 score of the same title. While the action of the film may appear abstract, it nonetheless references specific moments of leftist protest, queer S&M club life, acts of surveillance, and fantasies of new relations between human and non-human objects in an insterstellar dimension."
August 18 - November 26, 2017
An exhibition featuring more than twenty years of ceramic works by Annabeth Rosen. From CAMH: "Exploring the temporal nature of ceramics, Rosen melds the performative into both material and process. Composing through laborious, additive techniques, she pushes the medium beyond spectacle and into conversations about endurance-based performance, feminist thought, contemporary painting, and conceptual art."
