Art League Houston presents "Flicker Futures," "So It Will Be,"Ubuntu: I am because we are," and "Sustainable Lifeguard Chair Chicken Coop (SLICK)" opening reception
All events are subject to change due to weather or other concerns. Please check with the venue or organization to ensure an event is taking place as scheduled.
Art League Houston presents four new exhibits:
- Flicker Futures is a three-part analog-digital installation by the artist team Bill Brown and Sabine Gruffat based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. This exhibition is comprised of a series of analog-digital operations that recontextualize and build on current discourses surrounding the idea of the film frame, screen, and projector.
- So It Will Be is an exhibition of watercolor and ink on paper drawings by Houston based artist Daniel Heimbinder. Recognized for his monumental works on paper, Heimbinder depicts a complex, apocalyptic world with a meticulous and scrutinizing eye. His works are visually arresting and intellectually stimulating in their Bosch-like detail, telling a dystopian story of humanity where time and place are secondary to the narrative that unfolds.
- Ubuntu: I am because we are is an installation by Bronx, New York based artist Ahmed Tijay Mohammed (Tijay Mohammed). Ubuntu (uu-boon-tuu) explores the vital and significant role of women, especially the lives of immigrant women, whose daily labor and work, necessary to their families and livelihood, often goes unnoticed. In this sense, Ubuntu is a group portrait, celebrating the familial and societal impact of their lives and work.
- Sustainable Lifeguard Chair Chicken Coop (SLICK) is a new, interactive work by Houston based artist Kasey Short, funded in part by the 2019 Support for Artists and Creative Individuals Grant from the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance. This project and site-specific installation underscore the artist’s interest in creative sustainability, society and consumerism.
Following the opening reception, these exhibits will be on display until July 20.
