Right Here, Right Now: Houston
On View: August 23 – November 30, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, August 22, 2014 | 6:30-9PM
With Right Here, Right Now: Houston, the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston showcases artists living in the city and celebrates our region’s vibrant creative community. Houston has been a lively breeding ground for artistic innovation for decades now and is increasingly considered a global art center alongside New York, Los Angeles, London, and more recently, Berlin. The Houston of today is a globally networked city where a manageable cost of living and affordable studio space allows innovators to maintain practices at a highly professional level without having to sacrifice international recognition or an excellent quality of life. Right Here, Right Now: Houston is a dynamic portrait of the artistic developments taking shape in studios across this city and features solo presentations of work by Houston-based artists Debra Barrera, Nathaniel Donnett, and Carrie Marie Schneider. It marks the beginning of an occasional and ongoing series through which the museum will investigate localized artistic practices.

Art on the Lawn: Joseph Havel
On View: July 19, 2013 – April 30, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, July 19, 2013 | 6:00PM
The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston is pleased to present a new site-specific work by Houston-based sculptor Joseph Havel. For the third installation in CAMH’s Art on the Lawn series, Havel has created an “endless column” of books. 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.
