Art League Houston presents "Just Relax," "Makeover Kingdom," and "The Unwaged" opening reception
Art League Houston will present their next round of exhibitions in conjunction with the Fotofest 2018 Biennial, featuring work by Britt Thomas, Cobra McVey, and Rodrigo Valenzuela.
Thomas' "Just Relax" features a selection of audio, video, and photographic components that explores issues related to infertility. The phrase “Just Relax” refers to the most common advice given to people struggling with conceiving by well-meaning friends and family who frequently have no idea of the realities surrounding infertility and pregnancy loss.
"Makeover Kingdom," an exhibition by Houston-based artist Cobra McVey, features found object assemblages representing the King, Queen, progeny and members of the court in a futuristic kingdom.
"The Unwaged," by LA-based artist Rodrigo Valenzuela, features a single-channel video addressing unpaid labor, volunteering, and internship culture rooted in the capital market.
Following the opening reception, these exhibits will be on display until May 5.
