Last night, The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH) debuted their latest exhibition, a comprehensive survey of Brooklyn-based artist Christopher Knowles. The show, Christopher Knowles: In A Word, paints a broad picture of the artist’s work, brushing across text, sound, painting, drawing, sculpture, and recorded performance.
The works range from the expansive to the minutely detailed, engulfing viewers in rhythm and repetition both visually and auditorily. Knowles uses everyday materials like magazines and legos, then reorders them until they are entirely redefined. Familiar, strange, and undeniably fascinating, Knowles’ works are a must-see while in town.
The exhibition will be on view at CAMH through March 25, 2018. CAMH is always free. For museum hours and more information, visit camh.org.
