Houston Center for Photography presents Daniel Gordon: “Hue and Saturate” opening reception

WHEN: Friday 5:30pm

WHERE:  Houston Center for Photography, 1441 W. Alabama St, Houston, TX 77006, Get Directions >

COST: Admission is free

DETAILS:  “Hue and Saturate” brings together 11 works from New York-based artist, Daniel Gordon, for his first solo exhibition in Houston. Often described in the style of Matisse’s cut-outs or Cezanne’s still lifes, Gordon’s work uses shape, color, and size to playfully disrupt our ideas about medium-specificity, artifice, and photography in the age of the internet. Born in 1980, Gordon is squarely positioned in a pre and post-internet world. His tableaus break down classical objects found in still lifes into constructed forms and in some cases trace references, shadows, and pixels of flora, fauna, produce, and tableware. This emphasis on the digital construction of the image has a hide-and-seek characteristic throughout this show, alternating between explicitly revealing itself and tucking itself into painterly compositions of paper objects. While Matisse or Cezanne’s work might refer more to the shift from objective to subjective perception through the construction of the painted form, Gordon’s use of pattern, repetition and digital imaging illustrates the deconstruction and reconstitution of form from one reality or plane to another. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until November 10.

The 9/11 Heroes Run 5K series was inspired by Marine 1st Lt. Travis Manion, who was killed by an enemy sniper in Iraq in April 2007 as he selflessly pulled his wounded teammates to safety. Before his final deployment, Travis visited Rescue One in NYC, famous for losing almost all of their men on 9/11, and returned home with a deeper passion about why he was fighting in Iraq. At its heart, the 9/11 Heroes Run is a tribute to a personal commitment to never forget the heroes of that day.

Hooks-Epstein Galleries presents Clara Hoag: “bend” and Bernard Mattox: “Chasing the Thing” opening reception

WHEN: Saturday 6:00pm

WHERE:  Hooks-Epstein Galleries,  2631 Colquitt St.,  Houston, TX 77098, Get Directions >

COST:  Admission is free

DETAILS:  Hooks-Epstein Galleries will open its 2019-2020 season with its first solo exhibition for Houston-based ceramicist, Clara Hoag, along with a selection of works by longtime mixed media gallery artist, Bernard Mattox. In her latest exhibition, “bend,” Hoag creates pieces that reflect the human condition and the lived urban experience. With her sculptures, Hoag builds the parts, combining them with construction adhesive, epoxy, and mortar. She integrates architectural motifs into bodily shapes – segmented and layered, organic and geometric – that are caught among dense scaffolding and rubble. Each sculpture illustrates the balance between health and sickness; freedom and oppression; vulnerability and resilience; and sanity and madness. For Mattox, the guiding principle of his work is the result of him having lived the last thirty years in the deep woods outside of New Orleans, where he was born. He considers himself more archaeologist than artist, excavating memories, dreams, and imagery from the inner strata of his mind. In his latest series, “Chasing the Thing,” Mattox continues to use multiple symbols and themes to reflect a very personal experience in a subtle, yet intentional and archetypal way. Following the opening reception, the exhibits will be on display until October 12.

Susannah Mira’s “Guide Star” comes from her deep desire to transform ordinary things. Though source components vary – originating from industry, retail, or the home – her work is he result of tactile experimentation in the studio. By making and repeating simple connections and patterns, she shows that spectacular results can come from the humblest of materials. Following the opening reception, the exhibits will be on display until October 12.

Jonathan Hopson presents Marc Horowitz: “If it’s not mine, it’s mine” opening reception

WHEN:  Sunday 1:00pm

WHERE:  Jonathan Hopson, 904 Marshall St, Houston, TX, Get Directions >

COST:  Admission is free

DETAILS:  Jonathan Hopson presents “If it’s not mine, it’s mine,” Marc Horowitz’s forthcoming solo exhibition with the gallery. The assemblage and five individual works on view – motifs within the artist’s expanding but as-of-yet inconclusive forensic system – develop research that took Horowitz from the Roman ruins in Milreu, Portugal to the Dia Foundation in New York, where he encountered Blinky Palermo’s slender, two-tone paintings.

Switching between artistic vernaculars, such as the triptych, and archeological tropes, such as the photographic scale, Horowitz parodies the desire to institute mastery over ambiguity and uncertainty found throughout these disciplines. His canvases, in this case photographic scales imprecisely detached from their measurement function, reassert the power of the performative fake, the obvious decoy, the anti-climactic pun, the not-so-funny funny guy.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until October 13.

COST:  Admission is free

DETAILS:  Discovery Green Conservancy will present the bold and imaginative exhibition, “The Shape of Things: Michael Craig-Martin at Discovery Green.” The show comprises a series of six monumental sculptures by the renowned British artist Michael Craig-Martin, whose colorful, oversized steel forms offer a playful perspective of everyday objects and challenge our perception of space, appearing like line drawings in the air. This is the first exhibition of the Craig-Martin’s sculptures to be seen in Texas, and only the second venue in the United States. The works will be showcased around Discovery Green’s Kinder Lake and will be on view during park hours from August 1 to November 3. Craig-Martin (b. 1941) is an Irish-born, U.S.-raised, London-based contemporary artist. He attended the esteemed Yale University’s School of Art and Architecture from 1961 to 1966, where he studied alongside Chuck Close, Brice Marden and Richard Serra. He returned to Europe in the mid-1960s, where he became both a key figure in the first generation of British conceptual artists, and had a strong influence on the Young British Artists (YBAs) that graduated from Goldsmiths in the late 1980s.

COST:  $62.50-$82.50

DETAILS:  HomeCooked in Houston features Nigerian-inspired contemporary cuisine, a fusion of traditional Nigerian flavors, with undertones of Lagos street food in modern contemporary cooking. Their pop-up restaurant draws inspiration from smoking, an age-old traditional method of cooking in Nigeria and other parts of the world. The need to keep food for long periods of time birthed smoking of meats to dehydration for preservation. Though smoking was developed for a functional purpose, the flavor is purely magical on meats and fish. It’s therefore no surprise that smoked meats are a staple in many traditional Nigerian dishes. The pop-up event will feature a four-course dinner and a family-style brunch. The dinner starts with elements of Lagos street food reinvented into a fresh and flavorful pallet and finishes with familiar contemporary dishes cooked with undertones of Nigerian flavors. The brunch features a medley of smoked poultry seasoned with Nigerian spices, their famous gàrrí fried chicken, served with rich and fluffy red velvet pancakes + crème cheese. Brunch and dinner service is accompanied with free wine, champagne, mimosas and belinis + BYOB.

The FOMO Factory Immersive Pop-Up

WHEN:  Friday 10:00am, Saturday 10:00am, Sunday 11:00am

WHERE:  The Galleria, 5085 Westheimer Rd., Houston, TX 77056, Get Directions >

COST:  $18-$28; free for children under 3

DETAILS: The FOMO Factory will host an immersive exhibit filled with fantastical sets from iconic childhood moments. Visitors will shed their identity at the door as they shake off their worries and choose their new silly nickname before entering a fantastical world featuring 17 immersive rooms. In addition to FOMO’s now-iconic Birthday Room with its giant cake and Playground with rainbow seesaw, the Houston installation will introduce nine new concepts. In the Science Lab visitors can don a lab coat and goggles to conduct weird experiments, snuggle into a tent to tell ghost stories in the Summer Camp Room, or grab a giant marker and draw on the walls of the Coloring Book Room.

Unlike some immersive spaces, which operate much like a self-serve photo studio, The FOMO Factory specializes in offering an experience and not merely photo backdrops. The journey taps all five senses by including a theatrical staff, smells piped into rooms, a retro soundtrack, and even tastes of childhood. The FOMO Factory is located at the Houston Galleria in Suite 4710 on the mall’s third floor.
