Art League Houston opening reception: This and the Wall by Cassie Phan and Queering the Lines by Caroline Wells Chandler
This and the Wall is an exhibition by Houston-based artist Cassie Phan. The exhibit features an installation of more than 30 sculptural works and a series of video that occupy the floor of the gallery, deliberately avoiding any direct contact between the work and the gallery walls. Exploring themes of denial, fallible memory and variable human perception, the works in this exhibit are positioned low to the ground, viewable only from either looking down or crouching low, creating a narrative that disrupts the stillness of detachment, and invites an increased awareness of the viewer's perspective.
Queering the Lines is an exhibition of works by New York based artist Caroline Wells Chandler. The exhibition features paintings of celestial bodies in ceramic drag, as well as, hand crocheted drawings and sculptures of bears, antennas, equine familiars and the axis mundi to explore notions of queerness in all its rainbow spectrum glory.
On view through April 11.
