by Glasstire July 29, 2021

Glasstire counts down the top five art events in Texas this week. For last week’s picks, please go here.

Round 52 at Project Row Houses1. Round 52: Gulf Coast Anthropocene
July 31-December 5
Project Row Houses (Houston)

From Project Row Houses:

“After pausing in-person public programming due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Project Row Houses will re-open on July 31, 2021, with the unveiling of Round 52: Gulf Coast Anthropocene, curated by Ryan N. Dennis and Dr. Willie J. Wright.

Round 52: Gulf Coast Anthropocene is an intervention into global conversations about climate change. In other circles, it has been viewed as an example of the Anthropocene, a geological era associated with humans’ impact on the earth. This Round questions what public art can inform us about this era, our connection to the built and natural environments, and our need for a more just and sustainable world.”

 Slowed and Throwed: Records of the City Through Mutated Lenses2. Slowed and Throwed: Records of the City Through Mutated Lenses

“Originally exhibited at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Slowed and Throwed is the first museum exhibition with a conceptual focus on the late Houston hip hop legend DJ Screw.

Ellen Tanner3. Ellen Tanner: Fables & Family
July 13 – August 7
Moody Gallery (Houston)

From Moody Gallery:

“Inspired by the fine detail and luminous colors of the Flemish masters, Tanner has sought out information on their techniques and and has cobbled together a personal approach to painting with thin glazes of color over a grisaille. She applies these skills with a microscopic focus that makes each painting a tiny yet fully realized world, rich with detail and color. Sources of inspiration include ancient tales exposing human nature, the secret lives of animals, creatures, and characters in myths. These stories provide the framework which she fills with a unique cast of characters.”

Erica Felicella, Release.4. Erica Felicella: Release
July 31 only
Sweet Pass Sculpture Park (Dallas)

From the organizers:

“Erica Felicella will share a new art film, release, that highlights her 2020 performance art piece Resistance, Re-Live and Proceed on July 31, 2021. The film is directed by Dallas photographer and filmmaker Christian Vasquez and Kyle Montgomery is a contributing cinematographer. The event will start at Sweet Pass Sculpture Park after the closing of Material Girls’ Desire Paths at 8 pm. The screening itself will kick-off at 8:45 after a brief artist talk from 8:30-8:45.”
