Mark Flood: Gratest Hits
On View: April 30 – August 7, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, April 29, 2016 | 6:30-9PM
For most of his artistic career, Houston-based artist Mark Flood has created collages, paintings, and sculptures, and has altered found ephemera that serve to critique exuberantly the perverse ethics of the art world. The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston is pleased to present Mark Flood: Gratest Hits, the first survey of his work with pieces dating from the 1980s to 2015. Gratest Hits shows the deep wisdom and humor of three decades of Flood's work while ultimately revealing the true achievement of an artist who has produced many highly praised works and has an active career despite remaining barely visible at the museum level.
THE INTERVIEW: Red, Red Future
On View: February 27 – June 5, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, February 26, 2016 | 6:30-9PM
Human colonization of Mars is expected to begin in the coming decades as NASA and independent space ventures partner with corporate investors to explore the future of life on the planet. The recent discovery of flowing water on Mars’s surface fuels speculation that the red planet may already support life. Within this extraordinary context, the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston is pleased to present THE INTERVIEW: Red, Red Future, a solo exhibition by the artist MPA presented in CAMH’s Zilkha Gallery. Working closely with the artist, CAMH has commissioned an entirely new body of work: a dynamic installation that combines sculpture, light, and photography; a participatory work in which visitors can converse with the artist via phone; and an artist’s publication. Combining advanced technology and Minimalist aesthetics, MPA’s work sheds light on invisible forces and power.
