The Mission Houston Inaugural Exhibition


The Mission Houston hosts its inaugural exhibition, a group show that assembles a diverse selection of young and emerging artists, featuring two large-scale sculptures by Chicago-based artist Susan Giles. Horizontal Skytree and Horizontal CN Tower, based on the Tokyo Skytree and the CN Tower in Toronto, respectively, consist of wooden armatures covered in birch plywood with red oak veneer at the seams.

Five light boxes from Chicago-based artist Jeroen Nelemans' new series will also be featured. The artist employs Internet technology to explore the construct of images. Using iPad screenshots of Hiroshi Sugimoto seascapes — retrieved by entering parameters into common search engines — Nelemans re-renders the image by adding water droplets to the screen. The droplets function as a wide-angle lens, revealing glimpses of the iPad's RGB (red/green/blue) liquid crystal display.

Also included are new paintings by EJ Hill (Los Angeles), installations by Erica Bohm (Argentina) and Adam Gondek (Chicago) and objects by Missy Weimer (San Francisco).

On view through Oct. 26.
