Art opening reception: Scrap Iron by Jim Adams and Severance and Passion at
Broken Hill by David Habercom
Jung Center Houston
The scrap metal sculpture of Houston artist Jim Adams and the photographs of Tennessee resident David Habercom share The Jung Center Gallery space in November.
Adams' mission is to find aspects of beauty or meaning in what is considered "scrap" and give it a second life as art. The mute solidity and history of unheralded service found in the rescued metal objects flows into the character of the works.
Habercom creates dramatized photographs in series and incorporates a fictional history that aims to unveil the unconscious origins of religious desire. Habercom follows the premise that art, at its best, opens onto mystery. In conjunction with his exhibition, Haberon will present "What Does Art Look Like When It Matters?" a lecture that explores how the best art aims to transform our understanding of life, set for Oct. 31 at 7:30 p.m.
On view through Nov. 26.
