The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s summer series of grand-scale, immersive exhibitions continues with SunForceOceanLife. This major commission by renowned Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto transforms Cullinan Hall into a suspended walkway.

When visitors enter the epic sculptural work, they can explore a complex labyrinth of interactive pathways, all while suspended in mid-air. The massive, spiraling SunForceOceanLife comprises yellow, orange, and green materials that are hand-woven into engaging patterns.

Neto (born 1964) has captivated audiences around the world with his multi-sensory environments. One of the artist’s largest crochet works to date, SunForceOceanLife takes inspiration from his long-term commitment to the art, culture, and traditions of various cultures that form Brazil.
