Clark Richert
Geometric abstractionist Clark Richert is a veritable Renaissance man, versed in architecture, math and physics, in addition to his art pedigree. Pattern paintings steeped in astrophysics are here the order of the day. More...


“Victorian Radicals”
The Pre-Raphaelites lead the impulse to create socially and politically relevant art--in mid-19th century Great Britain. More...


Claude Monet
Why another Claude Monet exhibition? "Monet: The Late Years" solidifies the case that Monet introduced bold innovations during his final decade following a break from painting due to the deaths of his wife and son. More...


Anthony Hernandez
Los Angeles has been Anthony Hernandez subject for decades, and "Screened Pictures" is no exception in this. He shoots through bus shelter mesh, so the images seen through the mesh are blurred and evocative. More...


David Beck
This survey of David Beck's mostly small, always intricately detailed and imaginatively rich works is riveting. If the model of the Enlightenment era wunderkabinett has earned fresh fascination over the last couple of decades, Beck may be one of its finest exemplars. More...


Change Agent: June Wayne and the Tamarind Workshop
The difficult path towards social progress serves as the context for "Change Agent," which places June Wayne, in particular her series of works for which subjects were her mother and modern science, at the creative center. More...


John Buck
John Buck’s kinetic sculptures produce the pleasure of seeing clashing symbols all moving in concert, wryly playful yet joyless. More...


“Show Me as I Want to Be Seen”
What curator Natasha Matteson deems “productive confusion” sums up the magic of the art of “Show Me as I Want to Be Seen.” Anchored by Claude Cahun (Lucy Schwob) and collaborator Marcel Moore (Suzanne Malherbe) denied their gender--and any certain narrative of who they truly were. More...


“Seattle Style: Form/Function”
Fashion means something in Seattle, mainly for sportswear, and bringing function and couture into a heady mix of high and low aesthetics. More...


“Dilexi Gallery: Early Years”
Techno-nostalgia is a real thing these days, and this show revisiting the 50s-era Dilexi Gallery, one of several to come, implies that a fresh look at those then rebellious avant gardists is the art world's very timely equivalent. More...


Suzanne Lacy
What at first often looks and feels like a Hollywood production are real situations performed by regular folks. The invisible hand of Suzanne Lacy is behind all of it, this theater and drama of the ordinary taken to extraordinary lengths. More...


Mark di Suvero
Know primarily for his monumental public sculpture, a series of phosphorescent paintings more than just complement the maquette on view here. They clarify how gestural mark making lies at the root of the three dimensional work. More...


Ellen George
Ellen George deploy a unifying vertical line for their jumping off point. A sun-bleached quality permeates this body of work, as if the whole lot had been left out to cure for months or years under the glare of high-desert light. More...


“The Body is Work”
“The Body is Work,” featuring Hale Ekinci, Shir Ende and Mayumi Lake, is a take on Donald Judd’s idea of a “specific object,” works that exist between conventional genres. This exhibition highlights processes that identify their practitioners as complex makers. More...


Derek Boshier
That British pop artist Derek Boshier pops up in a Houston gallery reminds us that he resided and taught here during the 1980s and 90s. More...


“Art in the Age of the Pilchuck Glass School”
“Metaphor into Form: Art in the Age of the Pilchuck Glass School,” could be the first of numerous exhibitions drawn from the Rebecca and Jack Bearoya collection. The selection here provides an able introduction to the Pilchuck phenomenon. More...


“Contemporary Artists Explore Opera”
“Bel Canto: Contemporary Artists Explore Opera” examines the stories, traditions and themes of this most highly refined musical form, as well as the aesthetics, social influence and cultural impact of performance. It’s an immersive experience of luxury and decadence. More...


Allen Ruppersberg
This retrospective of first generation conceptualist Allen Ruppersberg proves that conceptualism need be neither dull nor repetitive. More...


Takashi Murakami
There is plenty for Takashi Murakami fans to cozy up to here, but go upstairs to see where the artist is going now. He gets self-reflexive in works that can include textual narrative that has some edge, even if he still wants us to smile. More...


Sterling Ruby
Sterling Ruby builds big things that feel like they sprang right out of the earth, move easily from pop culture references to art historical critique, not to mention from ceramic to urethane to wood. We want to move along with them from room to room. More...
