Houston First

Gerardo Rosales

March 21 - August 4
Partnership Tower, 2nd Floor Landing


Houston-based Venezuelan artist Gerardo Rosales produced a large-scale mural playfully linking three walls within Partnership Tower. His bold work is populated with intricate layers of personal symbolism and folk mythology, including a monumental hybrid figure that merges human and animal forms. Rio Chiquito is marked by a lush fantastical landscape that explores Rosales's experience as an immigrant in the city of Houston, particularly his walks along Houston's bayous. 


CAMH x Houston First is organized by Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and co-curated by Ryan N. Dennis, Senior Curator and Director of Public Initiatives, and Patricia Restrepo, Curator.
