The Museum offers many talks on every exhibition, presenting an array of ideas on each show—voices which range from exhibiting artists to international scholars to interesting viewpoints from related (and sometimes unrelated) fields. Check our calendar.
Music, Film, AND Performance Events
CAMHLoft Concerts are specially programmed by the renowned contemporary classical group Musiqa for each Brown Foundation Gallery exhibition. Other recent musical performances have included the Texas Noise and Ambient Noise Environment festival, avant-garde and jazz concerts, interactive children’s musicals, as well as dance performances by local companies. CAMH also presents many films, ranging from high art to documentary to camp, often in collaboration with other great Houston arts organizations.
The Museum provides ongoing programs about contemporary art that are not related to a specific exhibition on view. 20Hertzis a new lecture series conceived around themes of musical influence in everyday life. The series asks artists, musicians, and all-around-creatives to share the music that has influenced them past and present. The first Saturday of each month we offer an Open Studio program, which invites visitors of all ages to participate in hands-on activities inspired by an exhibition on view.
