Contemporary Arts Museum Houston opening reception: Right Here, Right Now: Houston
Right Here, Right Now: Houston features Houston-based contemporary artists Debra Barrera, Nathaniel Donnett and Carrie Marie Schneider. The exhibition showcases artists living in the city and celebrates the region's vibrant creative community.
Houston has been a lively breeding ground for artistic innovation for decades now and is increasingly considered a global art center alongside New York, Los Angeles, London and more recently, Berlin. The Houston of today is a globally networked city where a manageable cost of living and affordable studio space allows innovators to maintain practices at a highly professional level without having to sacrifice international recognition or an excellent quality of life.
Right Here, Right Now: Houston is a dynamic portrait of the artistic developments taking shape in studios across this city. It marks the beginning of an occasional and ongoing series through which the museum will investigate localized artistic practices.
