Contemporary Arts Museum Houston opening reception: Mel Chin: Rematch
Celebrate the opening of Mel Chin: Rematch at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and enjoy cocktails at the cash bar. Organized by the New Orleans Museum of Art, the traveling retrospective will launch its Houston run on with a roving opening at four venues.
Chin will present a staggered series of artist talks throughout the day, starting with Blaffer at noon, Asia Society Texas Center at 2 p.m. and CAMH at 4 p.m., followed by a party at the Station from 6-9 p.m. Mel Chin: Rematch continues through March 21 at Blaffer and through April 19 at CAMH and Asia Society Texas Center.
Working across media including sculpture, video, drawing, painting, collage, land art and performance art, Houston-born Chin has adopted mutability as his operating premise over his four-decade career, with works ranging from intimate sculptures and drawings steeped in the legacy of Dada and Surrealism to ambitious site-specific, research-driven, collaborative projects involving scientists, fellow artists and community members.
