Cauleen Smith

We Already Have What We Need

Brown Foundation Gallery
On View July 15–October 3, 2021

Cauleen Smith: We Already Have What We Need presents works by the acclaimed Los Angeles-based artist, and features film, video, sculpture, textiles, installation, and drawing. The exhibition emphasizes acts of caring as antidotes to the injustices and inequities that shape our past and present. For over three decades, Smith (b. 1967, Riverside, California) has harnessed acts of imagination and the power of revolutionary thinking to envision a better world. The title of the exhibition—and the expansive video installation at its center—suggests that, in fact, “We Already Have What We Need.”

Turn On, Tune In, Tap Out

Teen Council Exhibition

Nina and Michael Zilkha Gallery
On View:

May 13–August 8, 2021

Contemporary Arts Museum Houston’s (CAMH) Teen Council is pleased to present Turn On, Tune In, Tap Out, a group exhibition featuring work by Houston-area teen artists including painting, sculpture, video, and photography. Like the rest of the world, these Teen Council members faced the rapid shift to quarantine in the middle of the school year. Turn On, Tune In, Tap Out focuses on the relationship between our bodies and “The Screen” with largely three-dimensional works in a time when many are craving physicality, touch, and in-person experiences while directly responding to this cultural, social, and political moment.
