    Houston Beyond Convention: The Photography of Ben DeSoto, 1980-Present

    Houston Beyond Convention: The Photography of Ben Desoto, 1980-present reflects on three decades of work, past and present, produced by Houstonian Ben Tecumseh DeSoto. DeSoto’s career spans genres of photography and a diversity of human experiences. After discovering his love for what he has called the “scientific magic” of the photographic process, DeSoto followed his passion for photography to a career of chronicling his city. DeSoto has consistently challenged the viewer to see beyond static images of Houston, to look more deeply instead at the individual or community narrative behind the photograph.Presented thematically, the exhibit showcases DeSoto’s documentation of Houston: portraits of local visual artists and musicians from fringe music and arts scenes, fine art photography, journalism, as well as his life’s work, the Understanding Poverty Project. Through photographs, news clippings, and audiovisual materials dating predominantly from 1980 through 2016, Houston Beyond Convention: The Photography of Ben Desoto, 1980-present, tells the story of Houston and delves deeper into the varying ethos—across class and race--and forces the viewer to move beyond conventional thinking.

  • Wiess Energy Hall

    Houston Museum of Natural Science
    5555 Hermann Park Dr
    Houston, TX 77030
    Wiess Energy Hall

    Dubbed Wiess Energy Hall 3.0, the third iteration of this popular hall has been enlarged from its previous 8,500 square feet to an expansive 30,000 square feet—almost the size of a football field. Joining the completely redesigned “classic” displays is a bonanza of entirely new exhibits, making the new hall the most contemporary, comprehensive and technologically advanced exhibition on the science and technology of energy anywhere in the world.

    Entering the new Wiess Energy Hall, visitors step off of the elevator into a dynamic floor of a 21st century offshore drilling rig populated by a motley crew of sci-fi robots. Near the center of the cavernous new hall, a replica of a tricone rotary drill bit—fourteen feet in diameter—spins vigorously overhead.

    Not far away, the completely reinvented Geovator takes visitors on a reimagined fantastic voyage plunging down through the Museum floors into the earth, then back in time to the Cretaceous Period for an attack by hungry pteranodons and a meteor strike.

    The new hall also features “Energy City,” a 2,500-square-foot 3-D landscape representing Houston, the surrounding Gulf coastal waters and the terrain of southeast and central Texas. This vibrant “white model” uses bleeding-edge projection mapping technology to bring to life the energy value chain.

    Vintage Texas Wildlife Dioramas

    The new dioramas in the Education Wing have been a regular part of the museum for several decades. When their occupied space was deemed essential for renovation, museum staff was unable to simply throw away these dioramas with their rich and fine detail. Instead we decided to make an effort to do what museums do best – conserve these precious historical antiquities, preserving them for future generations to enjoy and appreciate.

    With research, we were able to determine when these incredible murals were painted. The Texas Gulf Coast scene is the oldest diorama on display. It was painted in the mid 1940s when the museum was located on its former grounds at the Houston Zoo. Initially this diorama was perhaps one-third its current depth; the walls were added in later years to match those of the other three. Travis Keese painted both the Prairie (1965) and Davis Mountains (1967) scenes during his tenure as museum staff artist (1964-71). The Big Thicket scene was done around 1969 by an artist name Harry Wortham. Keese was then contracted in 1996 to do conservation work on all of the murals, and also at that time painted the High Plains mural that is framed on the left. The murals were again touched-up by artist fabricators Brian Zievert and Robert Shuttlesworth during the 2014 reinstallation.

    In the Country of Numbers, Where the Men Have No Names

    In the Country of Numbers, where the Men have no Names tells the story of 6,000 Jewish men, most from Berlin, who were imprisoned in Sachsenhausen following the November Pogrom Night known as Kristallnacht. November 9, 2018 marks the 80th anniversary of the Progrom Night in 1938 when Nazis went through the streets of Germany and set synagogues on fire, smashed the window fronts of Jewish businesses, attacked Jewish people and vandalized their apartments.Well over 1,300 Jewish women and men were killed during the riots or as a direct consequence of them. Much less attention, however, is given to the over 27,000 Jewish men throughout Germany who were arrested after the riots and taken to concentration camps. These mass arrests were intended to dramatically escalate pressure on German Jews to leave the country. The Gestapo targeted young and middle-aged Jewish men, and once in the camp, they were subjected to much harsher treatment and singled out for SS terror and abuse. Over 80 perished in Sachsenhausen, the rest were released by the spring of 1939 on condition they would leave Germany immediately.

    Tom Loeser: Please Please Please

    In partnership with the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco, HCCC presents Tom Loeser: Please Please Please, a traveling exhibition of the Wisconsin-based maker and designer’s imaginative furniture and works on paper. The playful show encourages viewers to shake up their habits and interact with the environment and one another, while considering issues such as body posture and etiquette that are often taken for granted. Loeser’s work also raises a clever question: “If the furniture we sit on every day were totally different, would our lives be different, too?”Guest curated by Glenn Adamson, Please Please Please reimagines what furniture can be by juxtaposing the artist’s furniture with his series of pyrographs and cyanotype prints. “In making this exhibition,” says Adamson, “we have been inspired by Loeser’s way of turning furniture upside-down and inside-out. This is partly about understanding the medium’s full potential, and partly about sheer enjoyment. It’s a show that children and adults alike will love.”

  • Photography at its Limits: Marcos Lopez, Joiri Minaya, Oscar Munoz

    Houston Center for Photography
    1441 West Alabama Street
    Houston, TX 77006
    Photography at its Limits: Marcos Lopez, Joiri Minaya, Oscar Munoz

    Latin American and Latino artists have used photography to engage with modern media landscapes and critique globalized economies since the 1960s. But rarely are these artists considered leaders in discussions about the theory and scholarship of photography or included in conversations about the radical transformations of photography in the digital era. Curated by Natalia Brizuela, Associate Professor of Modern and Contemporary Latin American Literature & Culture at the University of California, Berkeley, and Jodi Roberts, the Robert M. and Ruth L. Halperin Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art at the Cantor Arts Center, this exhibition is an outgrowth of the recently-published landmark exhibition and accompanying text, The Matter of Photography in the Americas. The work selected for Houston Center for Photography’s galleries will focus on three artists: Marcos Lopez (Argentina), Joiri Minaya (Dominican Republic and USA), and Óscar Muñoz (Colombia), all who use photography as a foundation from which to question our relationships to Latin America as a region, its interconnectedness with the greater world, and the role the region has played in advancing photography’s technological evolution.Part of Latino Art Now! and the Spring of Latino Art.

The Southern region of Mexico, where Oaxaca is located, is routinely celebrated for its unique artistic and graphic arts output, its cultural institutions and a plethora of art and printmaking studios. The work of these artists, which has been exhibited around the world, exemplifies the exquisite quality and range of contemporary art and printmaking in Mexico.The V Element group exhibit will include carefully selected paintings and prints (lithographs, engravings, serigraphs, linocuts and oleographs) and will also incorporate the work of a fifth artist, a local Houston artist, to be announced on the day of the opening reception -- as a way of building upon the ongoing artistic dialogue between Oaxaca and Houston, cities that function as major cultural centers in Mexico and the U.S.Part of Latino Art Now! and the Spring of Latino Art.
