Houston Center for Contemporary Craft will present Tiff Massey: "A Different World," a solo exhibition by the interdisciplinary artist and metalsmith. The first exhibition of Massey’s artwork in Texas, "A Different World" showcases three bodies of work that reference the material culture of nostalgic pasts, from 1980s hip hop to African hair braiding. Informed primarily by jewelry, Massey’s diverse artistic practice deftly renders her observations on race and class in contemporary American culture.

The exhibition focuses on the artist’s colossal steel sculptures of chains and rings, alongside intricately braided crimson neckpieces and accompanying portraits. Themes in the exhibition span cultural appropriation, authenticity, and the diasporic legacy of “bling.”

The opening reception, which will also feature the opening of Justin Favela: "All You Can Eat" in the Main Gallery and open studios by the current resident artists, will have beer from Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co. and tacos from PAN de TACO food truck available for purchase.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through September 1,
