Mel Chin: Rematch

On View: January 17 – April 19, 2015

Opening Reception:Saturday, January 17, 2015 | 4-6PM


Organized by the New Orleans Museum of Art, the traveling retrospective will launch its Houston run on Saturday, January 17, 2015 with a roving opening at all four venues. Chin will present a staggered series of artist talks throughout the day, starting with Blaffer at noon, Asia Society at 2 p.m., and CAMH at 4 p.m., followed by a party at the Station from 6-9 p.m. Mel Chin: Rematch continues through March 21 at Blaffer, and through April 19 at CAMH and Asia Society Texas Center. The website http://rematchhouston.com will serve as an online portal to the Houston presentation’s four components.

Working across media including sculpture, video, drawing, painting, collage, land art and performance art, the Houston-born Chin has adopted mutability as his operating premise over his four-decade career, with works ranging from intimate sculptures and drawings steeped in the legacy of Dada and Surrealism to ambitious site-specific, research-driven, collaborative projects involving scientists, fellow artists and community members.

Endless (2013), made from books cast in bronze and resin, emerges from the centerpiece of the Museum’s lawn, the Ballard Fountain. The column of books, cast from a stack of Sotheby's auction catalogues among others, stands almost 20 feet high and gradually transitions from bronze to translucent resin. Join CAMH on Friday, July 19, for the official debut of Endless during the opening reception for Graphic Design—Now in Production, 7-9PM.
