Public Opening | Slowed and Throwed: Records of the City Through Mutated Lenses

Join us to celebrate Slowed and Throwed: Records of the City Through Mutated Lenses, a two-part interdisciplinary exhibition orbiting around the legacy of the late Houston legend DJ Screw. The first section of Slowed and Throwed features unconventional photography and new media produced by strategies paralleling the musical methods of the innovative DJ. Serving as the physical and conceptual core of Slowed and Throwed is a nesting exhibition of DJ Screw archival materials.

DJ Red, the in-house DJ of Screwed up Records & Tapes, will be creating chopped and screwed jams live.

Houston Sauce Co.‘s food truck will be parked outside of CAMH vending their vegan-friendly Slowed and Throwed inspired menu from 7-9PM.
