From the Museum:
“Visit Five Points Museum of Contemporary Art for a new exhibition featuring award-winning photographer Daniel Kramer in: “Giddy Up!! A Decade of Documenting the Houston Rodeo.” Originally shown at the Art Car Museum in Houston and curated by Noah Edmundson, this exhibition is being shown in an expanded form for Five Points Museum.
As a young boy, Kramer was exposed to the culture of the cowboy during summers on his father’s ranch in Idaho. Relatives Bud & Bobby Kramer ran one of the largest ranches in the U.S. and provided stock to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo from the early 1950s until the late 1970s. Bobby Kramer is in the Cowgirl Hall of Fame in Fort Worth, Texas.
When Kramer moved to Houston he was naturally drawn to the Houston Rodeo, which calls itself the world’s largest entertainment event. The 2019 Rodeo had more than 2.5 million attendees. The sprawling 3-week spectacle includes the Rodeo, live music performances, a barbeque cook-off, a carnival, a livestock show, a parade and trail riders. He has documented the various aspects of the Houston Rodeo since 2007.
In 2014, he photographed the event for Smithsonian Magazine’s Instagram account. Later that same year, the project was selected by the American Society of Media Photographers as one of the Best Projects of the Year. Additionally, one photo was included in The National: Best Contemporary Photography 2014 exhibition at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art.
Daniel Kramer: GIDDY UP!! A Decade of Documenting the Houston Rodeo is on view through May 30th, 2021.”
