Art League Houston and Suplex are pleased to present a pop-up exhibition by artist Ryan Hawk. The exhibition will feature a series of large-scale installations, prints, drawings, and video works that investigate reoccurring themes of inner-subjectivity and reflective conscious, illusion, and time-based transformation. Hawk uses both live performance and performance-for-camera as the foundation of his installations and sculptural objects, often utilizing current technologies to investigate the relationships that form when high modernist aesthetics and performance/action art are framed in a contemporary context.
For his Art League exhibition, Hawk will recreate his multimedia installations Repeating Histories and Leap, shown in early 2013 at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and a new sculpture and video installation created specifically for this exhibition. Print drawings and production stills will accompany the large-scale works and will allow for a glimpse into his art-making process. Also accompanying the exhibition is a free downloadable catalogue, created by Suplex Projects.
The exhibition opens with a free public reception on Friday, February 7, 2014 from 6-9PM and runs through February 14, 2014. Join us Saturday, February 8 from 2-3PM for a live performance by Ryan Hawk at Art League Houston
